Has it been a year already? In just a few days Small Business Month (also known as October) will be upon us once again. This year, SBA will be out hosting and participating in a number of major events. Here's a rundown of where (and how) you can connect with our program.
Want to get a head start on Small Business Month? Start a day early! SBA will be hosting a table at the 15th annual SOHO | SME Expo in Vancouver. SOHO is a business networking event that is free to register for, and offers a great venue to meet with like-minded entrepreneurs, local business, and star presenters. If you plan to attend SOHO this year, be sure to drop by the SBA table to chat with the people behind the SBA service and to discuss your ideas or thoughts on the SBA website so far. Check out their event website for more details: http://soho.ca/sme/
Join SBA at UBC Robson Square (Vancouver) on Monday, October 17th 2011 for two compelling speakers, Paul Cubbon: Marketing Instructor at UBC’s Sauder School of Business and George Moen: President of Blenz The Canadian Coffee Company. They will be speaking on start-up success, and will be taking audience questions. This engaging speaker event is FREE to attend - and can be attended live via webcast if you aren't in the lower mainland - but be sure to RSVP to attend very soon (before October 13), as seating is limited.
