Background: This program fills a unique niche in Calgary as it is free and specific for Calgarians who may not have similar opportunities elsewhere, and want to learn financial literacy and turn their business idea or hobby into a business here in Calgary. In participating, Calgarians, including new-comers and seniors, learn the basics about financial literacy and starting their own business, through a network building and resource gathering platform. Community members are encouraged to exchange ideas, skills, talents, and resources amongst other members, building social ties and a sense of community, and how to exchange these resources via bartering or the complementary currency network. This network has shown to be a incubator for new small businesses.

This series directs people to Momentum based programs for a more in-depth program.
