Event description

Description

On November 14, in celebration of Global Entrepreneurship Week, Startup Canada will announce it has accepted five new Startup Communities. Startup Community Leaders from these regions will come together with representatives from academia, government and industry to discuss strategies and next steps to build inclusive and creative Startup Communities across the country. This discussion will leverage some of the findings and pertinent themes of a national consultation series undertaken by Startup Canada, Google Canada and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) called Building an Entrepreneurial and Creative Nation.

Throughout the event, Canadians will also tweet their questions and ideas to the panelists via the hashtag #CreativeCanada and the panelists will share their insights on Building an Entrepreneurial and Creative Nation.
