Their stats back it up! 15 minute average response times and 7x fewer breakdowns because of better maintenance.

Our elevator maintenance is always supported by the team to ensure you can arrive at the second floor of SBX with ease and style. 😎

Today, we’re throwing it back to our Vetta Nordic Spa SBX Social Hour Takeover! Oh… the days of sunshine and t-shirt wearing - we miss you! ☀️

The hour was filled with getting to know Finnish culture, taste-testing some menu items that will be featured at the spa, and learning about how @vettanordicspa came to be! OH and the Vetta Team made sure that the drinks were flowing (shoutout to @thecollingwoodbrewery and @theflyingmonkeys for the bevys!) to keep the connections going strong..

Raise your hand below if you can’t wait to visit Vetta Spa ✋ The countdown is now officially on until their doors open in 2022 and we can’t wait!

Did you know that 60-80% of a grant application can be reused? 💲📄

Writing your first grant application may seem intimidating but it doesn’t have to be. Grant funding is a supportive way to grow your business, when funding aligns with your business goals.

In partnership with MENTORnetwork, Sandbox Centre invites you to join us for a three-part online program where you will develop a Funding Roadmap by aligning your business goals with government grants and accessing money to accelerate your growth.

Walk away from this three-part series with a developed funding roadmap, research and evaluation on funding programs, and ways to evolve your funding application building blocks.

Become “GRANTready” by clicking the link in our bio and registering! ⬆️
Program begins January 19th, 2022.
