Quebec City entrepreneur Michelle Osbourne wants to create a business incubator for women from minority communities who are taking the plunge into self-employment.

When Michelle Osbourne first arrived in Quebec City seven years ago to live with her partner, she felt like a fish out of water. She left behind a thriving business and a circle of friends in Toronto and arrived in la Vieille Capitale speaking no French, relying on her partner for basic errands and wondering what she was doing.
