My Gift To You
“My Gift To You” is a Toronto-based service that creates customized gift baskets for clients, based on the results of a personal consultation and questionnaire. Jennifer Kutz founded the company as a way to combine her background in the hospitality industry with her creative and artistic passions. My Gift To You has serviced clients all over the city, for occasions as diverse as birthdays and religious holidays.
“I needed a fresh start and a second chance. I knew ACCESS could help me."
After taking courses at the Toronto Business Development Centre, Jennifer came to understand that her business idea was unique and could potentially service a niche market. With no comparable businesses in the city, Jennifer saw an opportunity to embark on her own project, but had limited access to resources and funding.
Through her business mentor, Jennifer heard about ACCESS as an organization that supports entrepreneurs that have difficulty securing funding from traditional financial institutions. In October of 2010, Jennifer was granted a $3,500 loan towards startup costs and has since launched her business and website.
