Terry Guiel - Executive Director Downtown Peterborough

Brought to you buy Terry Guiel's and his team! Win This Space is back with an updated program for 2018.

Once again, we’re giving away a downtown storefront free for a year along with a variety of prizes generously donated by our sponsors for a total value of more than $40,000.

The Win This Space competition is a Peterborough DBIA initiative in partnership with Peterborough Economic Development, StartUP Peterborough, Community Futures Peterborough and Shorelines Slots at Kawartha Downs.

Entrepreneurs have until November 25, 2017 to put together a video application and submit it to the Win This Space competition through The top 10 finalists will take several workshops before a winner is chosen on March 1 by our panel of entrepreneurs. The winner will then have their choice of available participating downtown locations free for one year. To cover rent payments, we have 12 sponsors each adopting a month and contributing $2,000 toward the month’s lease.

“It’s exciting to see all the creative ideas people have for their dream of what they would do with a downtown storefront,” says Terry Guiel, Executive Director of the Downtown Business Improvement Area. “Win This Space is more than just filling vacancies or creating jobs, it’s about inspiring the next generation of entrepreneurs to take that next bold step.”
