The SOCAN Foundation in partnership with TD Bank Group has launched the TD Creative Entrepreneur Incubator Program. This program provides emerging music creators with seed funding, mentorship and the opportunity to participate in a webinar series that will hone their entrepreneurial skills and spirit.

  • $3,000 for start-up costs (marketing, business development, branding, etc.).
  • Mentorship by an industry professional.
  • Access to a webinar series led by industry professionals and experts.
  • A chance to be invited as a participant in the CSHF residency.

The Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame (CSHF) is also launching an in-person residency in addition with the TD Creative Entrepreneurship Program for select participants in the Entrepreneur Incubator. Five (5) of the incubator participants will be invited to Toronto, Ontario, to take advantage of studio time at the SLAIGHT Studio, a showcase opportunity, and an additional creative mentorship opportunity with an established songwriter, all during a residency in Toronto.
