Small Business BC
Our Waterfront Chats meetup series is geared at start-up businesses and provides an opportunity to hear from and network with local entrepreneurs. Learn about their successes, barriers and challenges to launching and growing their small businesses.
We hold Meetups almost every month, and every event will be unique. Small Business BC Meetups are open to entrepreneurs at any stage of business and from all industries. Follow the conversation using #SBBCMeetup.
Join us this month to hear about the benefits of the shop local movement. Learn about the impact of consumers supporting local small businesses as well as how many small business owners collaborate with each other to build and support their local economies.
