Erin C - Power to the People Parking

Updated: Mar 19

What’s the business that you came up with during the IDEA centre and where is it now? After finding my true passion, I chose to fight for student parking in the uptown area. Currently I am working towards meeting with common council to change the parking bylaws uptown! While at the IDEA Centre I made multiple connections with people I would’ve never met outside of this program. The IDEA Centre space is an inviting atmosphere that made the semester enjoyable! Yes, as of June, I am still working on my project and know many people that are still working on their idea!

What are you doing and working on nowadays? Besides working part-time, I am working on my submission and other ideas!

If a high school student contacted you now, in what ways do you think you could help them? If any students have any questions, I can try my best to help them!

What advice do you have for young entrepreneurs that are just starting out? Don’t give up!! Saint John has many programs and people that are willing to help you get on your feet and start! There are so many opportunities for young entrepreneurs!
