Seven provinces down, three to go. The momentum is building as Startup Canada, a grassroots, entrepreneur-led initiative created to support and inspire entrepreneurship, sweeps across the country on its National Tour that includes 40 stops through 10 provinces over seven months.
All eyes will be on BC as the Startup Canada entourage rolls into town this September to celebrate entrepreneurship and the incredible people and groups that make our province a great place to start and grow companies. The BC tour of Startup Canada is a collaborative initiative linking a diverse group of individuals and organizations with the common goal of supporting and celebrating all entrepreneurs - a group vital to driving the economy in BC and beyond.
