Unlocking Global Competitiveness with ESG Practices with EDC | Startup Global

July 25, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

This is the first Entrepreneurs Going Global Panel that Startup Canada will host, as part of the Startup Global 2023 program. These panels will walk you through the tools and resources you need to get your business export ready. To help break down the market entry barrier, we will facilitate conversations between entrepreneurs, partners and support organizations to support export-readiness for Canadian entrepreneurs.

Awovi Komassi: ESG Advisory Service Lead, EDC (Moderator)
Udit Bhatnagar: McRock Capital
Erica Coulombe: Vice President, millani.ca
Anita Spiller: ESG Director, Tru Earth

Early-stage entrepreneurs who are interested in learning about environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices for their early stage business.

The Startup Global program is powered by Startup Canada, co-presented by UPS, Export Development Canada, Desjardins and the Trade Commissioner Service, as well as our Ecosystem support partners: Scotiabank, Ebay, Google, North Forge, Trade Facilitation Office of Canada, GS1 Canada, the Intellectual Property Institute of Canada, Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters and Canadian Aboriginal Minority and Supplier Council.

Export Development Canada believes that good environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices are key to the long-term growth and success of their customers and Canada’s prosperity. Strong ESG practices mitigate risks, open doors to new opportunities, drive innovation, attract top talent and strengthen the social and economic fabric of the Startup Communities. This panel discussion, moderated by EDC will explore how strong ESG practices are critical for Canadian companies – not just to mitigate risks, but as a competitive accelerator in the global ecosystem.
