You don’t know how encouraging and hopeful it is when you see such great friends you've made without ever being to Canada!

Quotation mark

I came to Canada as a student in 1999, and only became an entrepreneur years later after corporate jobs. I wish that there was a community like PORCH back then. It would have made the whole journey less lonely.

I have never thought how powerful online community engagement can be. Thanks to you and PORCH I am discovering the power of community every day. It's AMAZING!!! You are amazing!

The Challenge

Being an entrepreneur is hard. Being an immigrant adds complexity and challenges.

Canada provides an astounding ecosystem for start-ups and entrepreneurs, but it is not perfect:

  1. Complex and confusing ecosystem that creates silos 

  2. Silos make it difficult to build widespread relationships

  3. Existing immigrant and entrepreneur communities are not specific to their needs

  4. Many existing communities are actually marketplaces
