Like building a house, when you start a business you need to lay a solid foundation. Without a strong foundation you run the risk of wasting time, energy, and valuable resources. To make sure that doesn’t happen, you need a business plan. Do you know how to create one or where to learn more about what you need to start your business? 

With so many business incubators, entrepreneurial networks, and mentorship opportunities, Ottawa is rich with the resources you need to be successful as a business owner. However, all of those options can be daunting to someone who’s just starting out, so how do you start without becoming overwhelmed?

Join us April 27th where we’ll be discussing what it’s like to start your own business and how to take advantage of the local resources available to set yourself up for success. Our expert panel will also share their personal stories about their first years in business.

Limited spots available!
