Your Business Your Future - Scarborough Small Business Forum
Mon, 17 October 2016, 9:30 AM – 3:00 PM EDT
The Toronto East Quadrant Local Immigration Partnership (TEQ LIP) in partnership with Steeles L'Amoreaux Strength in Partnership (SSIP), ACCES Employment, Afghan Women's Organization and Community Outreach Canada will be organizing its very first Local Small Business Forum.
It is in response to the steady increase of self-employed individuals over the past several years. This forum is intended to provide information to people who have started or are considering starting their own businesses, as well as organizations that help people start or build their businesses. Many new businesses are unaware of the many forms of support available to them such as adequate funding or loans, creating an effective business plan, and marketing strategies. It will bring together such resources to help individuals build a successful start-up business.
The event will open with an energizing and motivational speaker - Aziz Amiri a Successful Scarborough Business Owner, followed by a moderated panel of experts such as Vik Jain - Enterprise Toronto, Gerard Keledjian – New Horizons Media, Raj Narayanan – Digital and Social Media expert, Denise Wedderburn -Working Women Community Centre, Otis Mushonga – Access Community Capital Fund, Hector Vargas -The Toronto Public Library and Damon Maraj - Operation Springboard who will present a range of supports available. Following the panel will be a speed table networking session and a “service marketplace” for community organizations and business networks to promote their programs and services. The Forum is opened to community residents, service organizations and business networks.
Lunch is sponsored and provided by Pizza Nova
We anticipate that this daylong event will foster opportunities to collaborate, learn and connect.
