Our Waterfront Chats meetup series is geared at start-up businesses and provides an opportunity to hear from and network with local entrepreneurs and experts. Learn about their successes, barriers and challenges to launching and growing a small business.

We hold Meetups almost every month, and each 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 our fireside chat as we hear from Carla Heim, Senior Advisor for Social Entrepreneurship at BDC, Melissa Orozco, Founder and Creative Director, Yulu PR and Anna du Bois, Executive Director of Common Thread. They'll talk through their recommendations on the best way to get started, navigating the business landscape and how to grow.
