News – Small Business Month in Muskoka!

September 25, 2017 News

The Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) encourages the annual celebration of entrepreneurship by declaring “Small Business Week” in Canada. This year’s BDC Small Business Week is October 15-21, 2017.

In Muskoka, a group of economic development and business support organizations have partnered to create the Muskoka Biz Series – a regional collaboration of workshops and special events for YOU, the Muskoka business community – in honour of our small businesses and the contribution they make to our economy and community.

In previous years, Muskoka Biz Series’ Small Business Week events were all concentrated into one week which in some cases made it difficult for businesses to attend multiple events. In 2017, the Muskoka Biz Series partners are extending the celebration to Small Business Month in Muskoka during October. Through this year’s theme of “Collaboration and Connection”, the Muskoka Biz Series focuses on the idea that together we can create greater results for small businesses than what can be achieved by working independently.

Small businesses need to be able to stay on top of key trends and technologies, learn best practices and access the resources they need to be successful. Muskoka Biz Series will help your business to stay competitive through innovative and informative events that connect business owners with leading experts and high-profile keynote speakers. Choose one or many Small Business Month events to attend and meet new business contacts, explore partnership opportunities, and discover more about the local business community.
