Success Stories

Fancy to a Tee

Fancy to a Tee is a locally-owned women’s clothing line which takes pre-loved textiles, such as graphic tees, and transforms them into one-of-a-kind wearable art. Some of the most popular graphics categories found on her dresses, skirts and tunics include music bands, video games, sports teams, and vintage movies/tv-shows. Designer Nancy Laviolette believes SCP provides an environment which helps entrepreneurs build a solid foundation to grow their businesses and is using the grant towards marketing activities of her unique brand. Fancy’s designs can be purchased on-line, at pop-up markets, and The Backstreet Gallery in French River.

“My experience with the STARTER COMPANY PLUS program has been….exciting, fun, insightful, challenging, thought provoking, amazing, beyond helpful, etc… In short, the best opportunity EVER! I am so thankful to the Regional Business Centre and this program for all the help and guidance. I’ve learned so much and all in an environment geared to helping entrepreneurs build a solid foundation to grow their businesses upon. This is such an important program run by an incredible group of people. I feel better prepared to grow my business because of SCP.”
