October is Small Business Month so we’re hosting a free event for current and aspiring entrepreneurs, small business owners and founders!

The live Panel Discussion brings together Toronto founders from a wide range of industries — from tech to finance — to share their insights and experiences and answer questions from the community.

Moderated by April Hossain of Now Creative Group, Panelists include:

Avery Francis | Bloom |
Brett Reed | SnapTravel |
Octavia Faith | Paper & Coin |
Jay Vasantharajah | PureFilters |
Shauna Arnott | Haste & Hustle
Karekin Ezra | Emote.AI |

They’ll speak on their startup stories, sharing tips and what it’s taken them to get their business to where it is today.

This event is open to all and is hosted for free by Now Creative Group and Soho Innovation Lab during BDC’s Small Business Week.

Refreshments will be provided.
