The past year has been anything but business as usual. Entrepreneurs have pivoted, reinvented, and redefined their business model over the last year.

Join Canadian business ecosystem experts to hear their unique insight into what change has looked like and how innovation and creativity have inspired people to revisit the way they operate to foster resilience. Plus, learn about finding the right government support for your business – including COVID-19 specific programs. Finally, learn a few tips and tricks – for your business and pick up a couple of tips on navigating the government support landscape. With a focus on support for women-led businesses and the importance of bolstering diversity and gender parity, we’ll welcome:
