October is here and marks the beginning of Small Business Month, where 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 2012 BC boasted the highest number of small businesses per capita.
As a resource for small businesses throughout Canada, we 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 SBA 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 November 7th.
What the spotlight will entail:
- A 15 minute telephone or 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 questions here.
- A photo of you or your business logo
Are you involved in a business support organization or library in Canada that has shared our resources with members of your community? Read more to find out how you can help spread the word!
Happy Small Business Month! We look forward to Celebrating YOU!
