Change helps us grow and evolve as individuals and collectively as a business community. Over the past few years we’ve seen proof of that as Ottawa’s business landscape evolved from a small civil servant town to a city filled with new entrepreneurs and creative startups. 

With the change from government town to startup hub, people have changed the way they network and think about their careers. It’s no longer only about a paycheck and pension but more about what’s your passion and makes you happy. Following your passion and starting your own business shifts the focus from solely the bottom line to a focus on relationship building and inviting others to share in your passion. 

Building these valuable relationships and creating new connections, changes how we do business today. So what sparked the change from government and big business to local businesses and startups? Join us May 16 for our panel on our changing business landscape and what’s motivating the entrepreneurial movement in Ottawa. Tickets are available online and with credit at the door.
