What’s Coming Up in August

Happy August! We hope your long weekend was restful and relaxing if you had the time off or busy and bustling if you were running your business. There are a few things coming up this month that we want to remind you about:

Welcome to Business
August 13
6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Starting a business is an appealing idea for many women, but do you have what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur? This session helps you explore the advantages and challenges of being self-employed. It will also provide you with answers to frequently asked questions including: What is a business plan? How do I register my business name? Do I require any special licenses or permits? How do I finance my idea? A Business Advisor from the Women’s Enterprise Centre will guide you through the resources available at the Centre and introduce you to services delivered by our business network partners to help you put your dream into action.
