Waterfront Chats - Women's Day: Championing Female Entrepreneurship
Thursday, March 5th, 2020, 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM

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 Melanie Rupp of Women's Enterprise Centre, Lanna Lucas from Hunter Browns and Marissa Bergeron of Eat the Dishes. They’ll talk through their struggles and challenges as a women entrepreneur and give recommendations on the best way to get started, navigating the business landscape and how to grow.

If you're looking to start a business? Then who best to listen to about their own experiences starting a business than those who have only just done it. Hear about their challenges, there tips on what to avoid and why starting your own business is so rewarding!

Come to get inspired, share ideas, and meet new connections. As always, attendees will have an opportunity to introduce themselves and actively participate in the discussion.
