Global Entrepreneurship Week Event Invite


“Think and Live Your Business Growth”

Dear Esteemed  Entrepreneurs: 

You are cordially invited to participate in the “Think and Live Your Business Growth” workshop series, discussion, business clinic, and networking event to be held on November 21, 2019 at George Brown College.

Join us in celebrating, supporting, recognizing and amplifying the voices of entrepreneurs during Global Entrepreneurship Week Canada 2019.

This edition of our GEW celebrations is designed to equip you to overcome some of the growth challenges faced by Caribbean immigrant and diaspora entrepreneurs as well as other Canadian entrepreneurs (we leave no one behind).

Why you can’t afford to miss this event!

  • Just under 50% of Caribbean Immigrant & Diaspora businesses earn US$60,000 per annum. Many earn as much as US$20,000 less.  
  • Just over 20% earn above US$100,000 per year.
  • It takes 7-10 years to grow a solid business (some tech businesses excluded), and 15-20 years to grow gazelle sized businesses. More than 80% of Caribbean immigrant and diaspora businesses have been registered for less than 15 years. That speaks volumes when it comes to our entrepreneurial experience gap compared to other groups. In fact, Caribbeans are least likely to start and grow a business in all Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development member countries (of which Canada, the USA, and UK are members).

Many of our businesses are leaving monies on the table because of poor customer service, access to and managing finance, issues with marketing, limited network, management, planning, and execution.

This event presents five sessions for addressing five challenges below:

  1. Challenge #1: Quality Customer Service

          Quality Customer Service – Workshop ― 9:00 AM – 10:15 AM

  1. Challenge #2: Building Community Wealth while Fostering Inclusiveness and National Unity―
           Presentation & Business/Organizational Improvement Clinic  10: 35 AM – 11: 45 AM
  1. Challenge #3: Change Management for Driving Execution

           Workshop & Rap Session – Change Management for  Driving Execution ― 11:50 AM – 12:30 PM

  1. Challenge #4: Cooperating, learning, growing and building market linkages

          Strategy Update Charrette – The CoP ―  2:30 PM  – 3:45 PM

     5. Challenge #5: Building Networks

         Closing Mix “n” Mingle with surprise business opportunity― 3:50 PM – 4:30 PM

Get help with the challenges above plus social media marketing on a budget, business plans, models and more.
