Small Business Week 2016

Small Business Week (SBW) 2016 is scheduled for October 16-22, with the theme of “Measure up! Shape your future.”

What is SBW?

From the Business Development Bank of Canada’s (BDC) website, ” Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) trademark whose origins date back to 1979 when BDC business centres in British Columbia’s Lower Fraser Valley pooled their resources to organize a week of activities for entrepreneurs. This first event and the one that followed in 1980 were so successful that BDC officially launched BDC Small Business WeekTM across Canada in 1981. The initiative was quickly adopted by Canada’s business community.”

SBW is also chance to celebrate, support small businesses in your community, and to recognise the importance and contributions small businesses make to their communities.

The BDC’s website, is a great resource for entrepreneurs with business related articles, tools and inspirational stories designed to stimulate how owner’s and manager’s think about their business and help shape future success.

Thebacha Business Development Services is planning on Celebrating SBW with an Open House and Small Business Learning Sessions. Check back for more information and updates!
