The Brampton Entrepreneur Centre runs events throughout the year to support business and connect entrepreneurs.They also offer individual consultations and advice, and are the access point for funding and programs to support start-up and established businesses.
Balbir Sohi, owner of Smiles on Wheels, a Brampton-based mobile dental hygiene practice, was able to lean on the solid skills she gained at the Brampton Entrepreneur Centre when she faced the Dragons on CBC’s Dragons’ Den.
Smiles on Wheels is a mobile dental hygiene business that Sohi launched in 2012. Her Dragons’ Den episode aired February 8, 2017 and showed that her hard work and effort in the City of Brampton’s Entrepreneur Centre certainly paid off. Sohi secured an investment deal with Boston Pizza’s Jim Treliving for $240,000.
“I learned so much from the Brampton Entrepreneur Centre,” said Sohi.“ My experience there really helped refine my business model and prepared me for my Dragons’ Den pitch.”
“Balbir is a young woman who I have watched with great pride – she is a great example of not only the entrepreneurial passion necessary to be successful but someone who gives back regularly to our thriving city,” said Bramptons Mayor, Linda Jeffrey.
