A trio of local business owners will share their entrepreneurship journeys during an afternoon event in Sudbury on Feb. 27.

Homegrown Ventures – A Greater Sudbury Entrepreneurial Showcase is a joint initiative of the downtown business incubator Innovation Quarters and Laurentian University.

Each entrepreneur will share stories about their challenges and successes in setting up their businesses, followed by a panel discussion, a question-and-answer period, and an opportunity for networking.

Speakers include:

  • Dylan Lloyd, the founder of We Got Moves and Smooth Moves, sister companies that offer moving and junk removal services;
  • Gus Minor, the chief operating officer of Sofvie, whose software uses data to help mining companies make their operations safer; and
  • Hilary Deverell, founder and physiotherapist at Neuro North, a mobile physiotherapy service that offers neurological, vestibular, and orthopedic rehab in Sudbury and the North.

The event will take place on Feb. 27, from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., at the Jim Fielding Innovation and Commercialization Space at Laurentian University in Sudbury. Registration for the event is free of charge.
