The event, entitled Startup Sudbury, will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 26, from 7:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Days Inn in downtown Sudbury. The event is free of charge, but interested participants are asked to register ahead of time.
Topics to be addressed include attracting and retaining staff; making the move from home-based business to store front; overcoming prejudice in business; tapping into global markets; accessing funding and investments, and overcoming financial hurdles; and creating an entrepreneurial community.
The event is part of a greater program, Startup Canada, designed to enhance Canada’s competitiveness and prosperity by supporting and celebrating Canadian entrepreneurship. Events are being held across the country from March to September to glean input and ideas from entrepreneurs in participating communities.
Organizers hope to identify the top challenges facing Canadian entrepreneurs and create a collective vision and strategy for future growth.
