Their goal is to inspire your creativity, resiliency and future vision – so you can seize your future with the right skill set. The DeGroote Summer Experience Venture Challenge will enable you hone entrepreneurial thinking skills, working alongside side a real-world innovator (and DeGroote alumni!) – MERIT Brewing. Experience Ventures is funded by the Employment and Skills Development Canada.

Located in the heart of downtown Hamilton at 107 James Street North, MERIT Brewing is a brewery, kitchen, and bottle shop. Guided by a team of ambitious friends, MERIT strives to represent the heart, art, and soul of Hamilton in every beer, every bite, and every experience.
