Trep Café at coLab
Trep Café is a regular, informal meeting for entrepreneurs, startup founders, and small business owners — anyone passionate about the entrepreneurial life. Each weekly 1-hour session will be packed with opportunities to connect, share knowledge, and discuss exciting new ventures. Mosey on down to the coLab, grab a coffee and catch up with your entrepreneurial peers. Ever feel frustrated with the way your business isn’t going? Maybe you're dealing with challenges of scaling your business and stress out about the growing list of things that you don't know... How can I get more customers through marketing and sales? How do I find and hire a superstar team? How do I optimize my operations procedures? What technologies should I integrate? So why join Trep Café? Join a tribe: Building a business takes a ton of time and effort... AND doing it alone sucks. Trep Café connects you with a powerful group of mentors and motivators, whom you trust and have your back. Get big-thinking perspectives and priceless feedback: You solicit the help of everyone else in the group, getting valuable perspectives on a topics that would otherwise be difficult to tackle alone. Regardless of whether you are brand new or a seasoned veteran, this event is for anyone who wants to be their own boss and know how to accomplish their goals. Speak with a people who’ve been where you are now, in a casual networking setting over coffee about how to start and grow your business. Have any questions, suggestions, or general rabble-rousing to share? Add it below! Or... Introduce yourself by answering our 'top secret' meetup question. (Hint: What are you most excited about in your business? E.g. working on a Mars clock of 24h 37m[masked]s. — 'cause we can all use a little more time!)

What we're about

What is it?

As entrepreneurs, one of the challenges we face is that of working alone. Join a group of like-minded professionals to network, share contacts and contractors, collaborate on projects, or get feedback on business ideas, creative projects, or other initiatives.

Freelancers, entrepreneurs, small business, side-hustlers, all our welcome :) Our vision is for Kelowna to become the best community in Canada for entrepreneurs to do business.

According to the Central Okanagan Economic Development Commission, as of 2013, 95% of Central Okanagan businesses have fewer than 20 employees.
