Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to purchase a membership to access business advising?

Yes! Once a WESK Membership is purchased (or renewed) you are able to fill out the Request for Business Advising form (found on your dashboard upon logging in) to be set up with a Business Advisor within 5-7 business days! As a member, you get unlimited one-on-one appointments for free.

Does my membership auto-renew?

Your membership will auto-renew on April 1 of every year. If you do not want your membership to auto-renew, simply deselect the “auto-renew” checkbox after your purchase or at any time from your membership dashboard. Please note that refunds will not be issued for auto-renews.

What is the difference between the Pioneer and Trailblazer packages?

A pioneer package is a one time, $25 charge that allows you to access our Business Advising services for one appointment. It is not a membership.

The trailblazer package allows you to have unlimited amounts of Business Advising, Appointments, discounts on events & training, and access to our All-Access Expert Advice Program.

If you decide to just test things out at WESK by getting our Pioneer package (1 Business Advising meeting included) but decide that you would like to become a member after that, you will have to then purchase a Trailblazer package.

The Pioneer ($25 + GST)

She is the first.

The Pioneer package is ideal if you have an idea, or are thinking about entrepreneurship. If you want to be in WESK’s sphere of influence, but don’t know where to start, The Pioneer package is perfect for you. 

Note: The Pioneer package does not include a WESK membership. It is meant to serve as an introduction to our programs and services.
