Small Business Week:

October 2023 Stay tunned for more details coming soon!

In mid October 2023, thousands of small business owners across Canada come together to celebrate, learn, and network with other entrepreneurs.

Small and medium-sized businesses are the foundation of the Canadian economy, accounting for 99% of all businesses. In 2015, SME's employed approximately 10.5 million Canadians in the private sector. It is important that we take the time to recognize their successes and recommend helpful tools and resources to help them thrive!

The BVCC and 106.5 Mountain FM partner every Small Business Week to promote local Bow Valley Businesses with Small Business Tips!

"Get back up when you fall down - Being in business this happens often and the important thing is to continue with grace, dust off and get back at it again! Perseverance takes courage but it always wins!"

"Be yourself! If you have a good idea and you want to bring it to market, make sure you don't lose your personality in the other details. If you had the idea, remember to hang on to why you wanted to share with others and what you wanted to share. It'll help drive many decisions and marketing plans."

Conor McKeown -Lovely Ice Cream


"Accountability! So often business leaders haven't had to be accountable to anyone in running their business. Get a coach. Get a peer accountability partner.  It's the number one action to take."


Stephanie O’Brien - Carmella Marketing

"Focus on the things that you can control and don't worry about the things that you can't."

"Community – Engage with your peers and ask a million questions. It’s amazing how many people will share their stories and experiences. There’s lots to listen to, learn from, and brainstorm."
