Forging the way forward: How entrepreneurs are adapting to the pandemic
October 19 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Canadian entrepreneurs are defying all odds amidst one of the largest economic crises in history. Despite the new business reality caused by the coronavirus pandemic, they are adapting and positioning themselves to succeed in the future.
Join BDC’s President and CEO Michael Denham in conversation with business owners for a free virtual event. You will hear real stories of entrepreneurs who have successfully navigated this new business context. You will learn:
- How the pandemic has impacted Canadian businesses
- What entrepreneurs did to turn things around
- How these same business owners are preparing for tomorrow
As part of BDC’s Small Business Week kick-off, we will welcome the Honourable Mary Ng, Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion and International Trade. You will hear about the federal government’s COVID-19 support programs for small businesses and how business owners can prepare for the uncertainty of the months ahead.
We are also pleased to welcome Sami Hayek from Pitbull Energy Services and Joanna Griffiths from Knixwear to hear their personal accounts of innovation and courage.
