Small Business Week 2017

Small Business Week

Every year for the past 30 years BDC has organized Small Business Week® to pay tribute to Canadian entrepreneurs.  This year Small Business Week is starting on October 15th through to the 21nd, 2017.  The Biz 2 Biz Expo will be held on Thursday, October 19th from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  
Exhibiting is an efficient, cost-effective way to maximize your company’s profile while making valuable contacts and networking with the people you want to reach.
To Register for the Biz to Biz Expo on October19, visit the Greater Charlottetown Chamber of Commerce. 
Entrepreneurs are idea people - filled with ideas, aspirations, and objectives. They see an opportunity at every turn and are continuously looking for improvement. An entrepreneur's life is frenetic, powered by a seemingly unlimited vitality. The entrepreneur's tenacity is surpassed only by a strong passion for business.
Small Business Week reflects the energy and efforts of Canadian entrepreneurs of all ages and pays tribute to their important contribution to the strength of the economy. It will also be the background for all the activities that will take place throughout the Week. For more information on Small Business Week, visit
