Partner with us
Whether you’re a small startup looking to grow your reach or a well-known brand wanting to make a difference, GenNext East Ontario is here to help.
You’ll often see us calling our partners ‘friends of GenNext’, and it’s true! We work closely with our partners, and they know they can count on us. Our partners are engaged in their communities—and they show their local love, while meeting their business goals.
Let’s work together.
We’re always on the lookout for new partners who want to help us make a 100 % local impact in Prescott-Russell, Ottawa, Lanark County and Renfrew County. Contact us today and we’ll collaborate to create a partnership plan that’s right for you.
Together, we can:
- Spread the word about your organization’s work in the community, local initiatives, and events.
Our GenNext EO newsletter, website, and social media channels feature shoutouts to our partners.
- Connect you with local change-makers and help you reach new audiences.
Our signature events bring together young leaders, philanthropists, social entrepreneurs, and local creatives.
- Highlight your organization’s social values—the causes you care about—with compelling content.
