Panel topic: Making a splash in international markets

Canada has a unique geography, ringed by a single international border and three oceans. It’s easy to feel disconnected from the rest of the world and the exciting developments in international markets.

Questions:

  1. What unique challenges do Canadian entrepreneurs face in accessing international markets?

  2. What special challenges are faced by entrepreneurs in smaller communities?

  3. Who has found innovative ways to surmount the geographical and psychological barriers separating us from international markets?


Light refreshments will be served.
