Happy New Year Product Hunters!!!!
It's a new year and if you are into making resolutions then this is the one to attend.
If your goal in 2019 is to be motivated in business and improve your selling then we have the perfect person to get you going.
To kick everything off we'll have a talk from an amazing entrepreneur named Craig Elias who has seen it all in business. He'll talk about the 10 Mistakes Entrepreneurs Make, so you don't have to make those mistakes in the new year. Read more about Craig Elias below.

We have some great facilities at Bow Valley College on North Campus in Room N124. There will be signs directing people to the room but if you are lost then feel free to ask one of the security guards the location of room N124.
There is a parkade attached to the college with an evening rate of $5 and there is ample street parking, but please be aware that different zones may have different rates. The college is also in the free downtown zone of the C-Train and right in front of the City Hall station.
