Boosting Business

Boosting Business Program for Downtown Guelph BIA Businesses

The Boosting Business program gives Downtown Guelph BIA (Business Improvement Area)  businesses the opportunity to apply for extra funding – a maximum of $250 per business – to host public events at their business.

Working in closer partnership with businesses, the DGBA has a more direct hand in helping each business flourish and benefit from attracting clientele into the core.

Funding is available twice a year in the Spring (10 businesses) and Fall (10 businesses) for Boosting Business.

When submitting applications please allow 3-4 weeks, in advance of the event date, for approval.


Are you a Downtown Guelph BIA business?

The Boosting Business program is available for Downtown Guelph businesses only. After applying for Boosting Business your business will be notified of approval, and funding will be released once the DGBA receives a final report within 30 days of your event.

Boosting Business cheques must be made out to the name of the business.

If you are part of the BIA and planning on hosting a public event for which you would like to apply for funding, fill out and submit the application below.

Creative Edge celebrated 20 years this summer by having a weekend customer appreciation event. Collaborating with Blooms and Flora they used the funds to create a beautiful wall mural showcasing a piece sold at Creative Edge during Art on the Street which folks took selfies in front of all day.
