In the dynamic tech and start-up landscape of North America, The Next Big Thing is breaking ground and setting trends. A non-profit foundation conceived by Hootsuite CEO Ryan Holmes, among other heavy-hitting local business-people, with a mission to identify and empower young entrepreneurs. Through a series of innovative programs, “code camps”, and unconventional learning opportunities, TNBT is giving Generation Z the resources, education and network they need to succeed.
Specifically, The Young Entrepreneurs in Residence (YEIR) program, under the umbrella of TNBT, is providing 10 lucky youth, aged 17-22, the opportunity of a lifetime. Over the course of 6 months they’ll receive:
- $100,000 in no-strings attached grant funding
- Experiential learning at Hootsuite Headquarters
- Priceless mentorship and access to a high-impact network of renowned mentors, investors and advisors, including TED Talkers, published authors, Dragon Den-ers, media mavens & successful business founders
- The opportunity to launch their new start up
Hollyburn is the official housing provider for TNBT, offering up 3 beautiful, 1 bedroom apartments at Central Plaza, in the heart of downtown Vancouver, to accommodate 6 of the 10 youth that hail from afar during their 6-month stay. These apartments are fully furnished with everything the participants need, including linens, flat screen TV’s, all kitchen and bathroom supplies and cozy sofas to lounge on during late-night brainstorming breakthroughs.
Hollyburn was founded 40 years ago by a like-minded entrepreneur and continues to be fundamentally based on innovation and industry-leadership, in this case in the rental housing space. By supporting TNBT, Hollyburn is taking part in a group of trailblazing organizations that encourage and support lasting change and positive evolution.
Hollyburn firmly believes that strong community and family values are essential to creating vibrant and fulfilling lives.
“We feel privileged to be the official housing provider for the young entrepreneurs of TNBT. These are the movers, the shakers and the future decision makers of Gen Z. Hollyburn is proud to play a part in housing dedicated youth while encouraging them to lead in the world of innovation and originality.” –Mark Sander, Director, Hollyburn Properties

Welcome to the Scott Mission, a place where programs, love and support are offered to the Greater Toronto community without judgment or discrimination. A place where shelter, food, childcare, employment advice and counseling services are provided to thousands of people every year in Toronto that need a helping hand.
Established in 1941, the Scott Mission is a non-denominational, faith-based street mission in downtown Toronto, responding to the needs of the poor and homeless in their community. Hollyburn Properties staff in Toronto were proud and humbled to be able to participate, for one day, in the goodwill that takes place here year-round.
Our team was able to join forces with the wonderful souls that run a tight ship in the charity kitchen, to prepare, cook and serve a meal to a lively group of nearly 100 people that were seeking the help of the Mission on that sunny day in August. It was an extremely enlightening experience to help lessen the burden of these kind folk, giving back in some small way with full hearts and a big smile. Find out more about Hollyburn's mission of corporate social responsible here.
Here are a few pictures of Hollyburn Properties Toronto staff preparing food and volunteering their time in a community in which we are lucky to be a part:
Our rental apartment team in Vancouver was fortunate to volunteer at the Salvation Army Belkin House in last December, 2013. Read more on that story here.

A gym, dishwasher, granite countertops… What features do you look for when considering a rental apartment?
A recent study conducted by the National Multi Housing Council (NMHC) and Kingsley Associates includes the feedback from nearly 15,000 apartment residents from across the United States on what their most desirable building and suite amenities are. The NMHC are champions at advancing the multi-family apartment rental industry in innovative ways and we often look to our neighbours down south for insights on improving our operations and customer service.
According to the survey, high-speed internet access and a patio or balcony top the list of most desirable amenities for apartment residents. How do you feel about the results below? Do they fall in line with your desires and values?
