I have dealt with sandbox on a few occasions now and have nothing but the best to say about the organization. For anyone who has a small business, or is thinking of starting a small business, this is the place to be. Danielle, Chris, Jesse, Craig and all support staff are extremely welcoming and truly looking to assist. The programs and guest speakers they have on a regular basis are second to none. A truly amazing addition to the Barrie community; I highly recommend popping in to say hey or at the very least check out the beautiful facilities.

If you are an entrepreneur looking for support, new ideas, and connections to other businesses, you need to visit the Sandbox Centre and attend their events. It's also a great place to drop in and work when you're in downtown Barrie. The bonus is the staff are excellent and the venue is spectacular.
