For the second year in a row, the Haliburton Rotary Club is showing it believes in the Haliburton Creative Business Incubator.
The club supported the program by being its platinum sponsor for the 2012/2013 year, donating $4,500 to the incubator.
Through the Haliburton County Development Corporation, the HCBI program develops local entrepreneurs and businesses throughout the Highlands through mentoring initiatives.
It is this investment in the future of Haliburton County that the Rotary Club believes in, according to Mike Jaycock, manager of the HCBI.
Members like George Kadoke and Hugh Nichol have even dedicated their time to the program by becoming mentors to those currently working out of the incubator.
"If we can give good advice at the right time, it can make a world of difference to a business person who is working alone, working so very hard to get to the next level," said Nichol in a press release.
