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.
