We couldn't do it without them!

To all of our sponsors we extend our sincere gratitude for making Small Business Week Calgary possible!

Our sponsors work with small business owners every day and know the importance of small business to a thriving community and the impact they deliver to our economy. Their financial support allows us to offer you free events and resources while their expertise ensures that the content delivered is relevant and educational. We encourage you to visit their websites, meet with them at one of our events and thank them in person for their contributions.
