Based on the success of the first round of the SMARTstart program, we are happy to announce that we will be running it again this year in partnership with the Town of Canmore!

Throughout COVID-19, business-owners have demonstrated their creativity and ability to pivot. This creative spirit is also brewing in the next generation of entrepreneurs with creative ideas ready to launch.

To revitalize the strength of our economy, we will need entrepreneurs to step forward to be part of our new future, and we want to help them be prepared to meet the unique financial risks of this time. That is why we are running another class of SMARTstart.
