Shared by Small Business BC
In British Columbia, 98 per cent of all businesses are small businesses. They are the backbone of our provincial economy, providing millions of well-paying jobs and helping to sustain our regional communities. At Small Business BC, we exist to help small business owners start and grow sustainable businesses.
Through our partnership with Destination BC, we are offering tourism businesses like yours FREE access to Advisory Services, Educational Webinars and Business Strategy Advice. These free services will help your business navigate the unique challenges posed by the pandemic and hopefully emerge stronger from the other side.
We get it, you’re a business owner and your time is money. It can be difficult to find the time to devote to continuing education. Here are some of the reasons you should make the most of this offering:
Our webinar presenters and advisors have been there and done that. They’ve got the expertise your business needs to succeed.
How we helped Dale: “One will always walk away from a webinar or a simple conversation one on one or in groups, with so much new information and knowledge. No matter what your plans are for your future business, the webinars are so very well prepared and presented by outstanding individuals.” Dale Durant.
Sounding Board for Ideas
Entrepreneurship is often described as a lonely endeavour but you aren’t on your own. Here’s how our Business Plan Advisor, Laura Aveledo, helped our clients Takasa:
“Laura really scrutinized our financial plan and helped us take a second look at our assumptions and calculations. Working with her helped us identify where to find our ideal customers and really incorporate more depth into our Business Plan.” Ruby Rakhra, Takasa.
We’ve Been There
Many of our advisors have experience running their own business. They understand the challenges involved and realize entrepreneurs need tailored advice that applies to their business.
How we helped Aidan: “I recently met with Mark Eversfield (Market Research Advisor) to discuss our business and broaden my understanding of market evaluation as well as gain new strategies to nail down our market. What’s great about Mark is he doesn’t just hand you a report or provide some list of generic market websites – he genuinely gets to know you and your needs.” Aidan Scott, Speakbox.
Amid the rapidly shifting COVID-19 landscape, we’ve created a range of dedicated services and supports to help you survive.
