In partnership with eBay Canada, exclusive banking partner Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) and shipping partner UPS, the Summit will take place on October 26th, 2022, at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The Small Business Summit is a unique event that brings together small and medium-sized businesses across Canada for a day of learning, networking, and celebrating entrepreneurship. As part of this year's theme, "Embracing digital disruption," the summit will explore how businesses can embrace digital disruption to drive growth and success.
"At eBay Canada, powering small business by helping Canadian sellers access a global marketplace of over 139 million buyers is at the heart of what we do," said Rob Bigler, general manager of eBay Canada. "We look forward to showcasing the ingenuity, determination, and innovativeness of Canadian entrepreneurs and helping them find new ways to bring Canadian business worldwide, at the Small Business Summit."
The one-day conference will be held on October 26th, 2022, at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. Attendees can expect to hear from keynote speakers, participate in panel discussions, and network with other like-minded entrepreneurs. This is a rare opportunity for small business owners to get together and share their experiences, ideas and advice.
"For entrepreneurs, starting a business is often one of the biggest and most exciting things they've ever done. That's why I feel a passion for helping small businesses grow," states Paul Gaspar, UPS Canada small business director. "UPS has the tools small businesses need to take care of the small stuff-shipping, fulfillment, etc.-so they can find more time to focus on their big ideas. We're proud to support small businesses across Canada and help them be unstoppable."
We at CanadianSME believe in recognizing the efforts of small business owners. Through this annual summit, we wish to provide such entrepreneurs with a platform where they can meet like-minded individuals, share their experiences, and learn from one another.
