October is here and marks the beginning of Small Business Month, when we celebrate the vitality that small businesses bring to the culture and economy of Canada. British Columbia is especially proud of their contributions to our province – in fact, in 2014 BC had the most small businesses per capita in Canada. As a resource for small businesses throughoutwe are launching Celebrating YOU!, a campaign to celebrate the people who take SBA market research resources to transform their idea from a concept to a reality. The opportunity to be featured on our blog will increase exposure for your new business, and give you a platform to share your experiences with other aspiring business owners, contributing personal real-life experience to the wealth of online knowledge.
- an aspiring small business owner in Canada currently using our resources to realize your dream of becoming your own boss?
- a small business owner in Canada that has used our research resources to get your business off the ground and want to share your story?
Contact us for the opportunity to highlight your successes! Please get in touch with us at your earliest convenience but note the final deadline is Friday, November 13th.
What the spotlight will entail:
- A 15 minute telephone interview or brief email Q&A to tell us about your small business, your start-up process, and how our resources helped you get your business off the ground. See some sample Celebrating You Questions.
- A photo of you or your business logo and a short bio.
For new partners:
Are you involved in a business support organization or library in Canada that has shared our resources with members of your community? Find out how you can help spread the word with our Partner Guidelines .
Happy Small Business Month! We look forward to #CelebratingYou!
