Your Community, Our Resources
Small Business BC is located in Vancouver’s Waterfront Station but our focus extends far beyond the Lower Mainland. Entrepreneurs around the province have made use of our services by attending one of our Popups. British Columbia is a hub of entrepreneurship and we’re always looking for opportunities to bring our educational resources and content to communities province-wide. Host Small Business BC in your area and local entrepreneurs can enjoy the following benefits:
Empower Small Business in Your Community
An educated small business is a resilient small business. We will share our content and resources with your community.
Provide Access to Expert Advisors
We will bring a small business advisor to you community, who will be available for one-on-one consultations. Have businesses with a special interest in import/export, market research or business planning? Let us know and we can bring the right expert.
Demonstrate Your Support of Small Business
Small business is the backbone of the BC economy, generating approximately 34% of provincial Gross Domestic Product. Hosting Small Business BC in your community will help show your support to these businesses.
What We Need
All we need from a host community is a space to hold the popup and help to spread the word. We’ll do the rest! You will benefit from brand exposure in our digital marketing campaigns. We will gain a space to educate small business owners.
