We Help Grow Your Business

with support, services and the workspaces you need to succeed! 

Experience Freedom

Whether you’re just starting out with an idea or have been running a business for some time and wish to make it more manageable and profitable, Freedom Cafe can provide you with the support, services and workspaces you need to make it happen. 

Serving Kitchener-Waterloo and surrounding areas, we help novice and struggling business owners become confident and capable managers of their own operations by equipping them with the skills and support services they need to increase their revenues, profits and quality of life.

Professional Support

We provide networking events, workshops and our unique Founder’s Forum to help novice business owners develop the expertise they need to make a business run smoothly and profitably. Take advantage of our free drop-in sessions where you can get helpful advice and assistance with your general business and technical needs.

Founder's Forum

The Founder’s Forum consists of three separate programs designed to help businesses at different levels perform as efficiently and profitably as possible while respecting the personal needs of the business owner.

Each program consists of weekly meetings in which you and up to three other non-competing peers receive hands-on management and marketing training here at Freedom Cafe. One hour is generally devoted to a management meeting with two additional hours per week spent in lab time.

These are not consulting sessions. These are training sessions in which you learn how to become a better manager of your own business. You will be guided by an industry expert in the management meeting and get hands-on assistance during lab times from staff professionals to help get your action items done correctly and on time.
All Founder’s Forum programs are custom designed for each participant. We will not give you generic templates or instructions to follow. We learn about your business, identify its strengths and weaknesses, then we help you build the foundation, processes, confidence and enthusiasm to make your business work for you.

Many small businesses fail for the exact same reason: their owners take on far too many responsibilities. But the fact is, there simply aren’t enough hours in a day for one person to do all the jobs it takes to make a business survive – let alone flourish. At the Café, you can get support services in affordable packages or on an as needed basis. Get just what you need – just when you need it.
