Peer Mastermind Program
The Bow Valley Chamber of Commerce (BVCC) has partnered with MExit, Town of Canmore Economic Development, and e=mc2 the Centre for Business Excellence to provide the 2022 Peer Mastermind Program. This program is a working group where local entrepreneurs discuss business, life, and balancing the two in an organized way with like-minded individuals. The group will offer a combination of brainstorming, education, peer accountability, and support in a group setting to sharpen business and personal skills. The Peer Mastermind Program helps local entrepreneurs achieve success. Members of the program challenge each other to set strong goals, and more importantly, to accomplish them.
Peer Mastermind Program sessions will be consistently held on the first Wednesday of every month from 7:30-9:00am starting in January 2022. Currently the program is booked for in person sessions at the Malcolm Hotel in Canmore (unless otherwise posted). Sessions will take place in person unless we are unable to do so because of public health guidelines.
Space is limited for the Peer Mastermind Program. The program is designed to support everyone in the group and to introduce local entrepreneurs to each other. In order to benefit from this program, successful applicants will need to be removed from their comfort zone. They must be willing to make new connections and to assist their peers.
*All 10 morning sessions include a hot breakfast and perks!

Cravings Gelato is a Banff-based business founded in 2011. Charlynn's passion for gelato first started in Italy, and from day one she knew she would be creating Ice Cream with Romance.
She is often asked, what makes gelato different from ice cream. It comes down to two simple factors, less fat & less air. It is a slow-to-melt milkiness that is rich in taste & flavour.
