Small Business Week Calgary 2018, which runs October 15-19, pays tribute to the contributions that small business make to the Canadian economy (those that are less than 100 employees). Its focus is on:
- Uniting our city’s tireless, hard-working entrepreneurs under one tent to inspire and nourish the entrepreneurial spirit that powers Calgary’s economy—all through a full week of programming and events specifically tailored to their unique business needs.
- Rallying the entire city together to shine a spotlight on the unsung heroes of our small business community through the Small Business Calgary Awards. Together, we celebrate their achievements in exponential growth, innovation, social entrepreneurship, and company culture.
For the fifth straight year, the Calgary Chamber partnered with ATB Business to launch SmallBusinessWeekCalgary.com - the single-largest touch point for all events and activities relating to Small Business Week in Calgary. Think of this website as an easy-to-access hub where everything – and anything – that has to do with Small Business Week is available, making it easier for the Calgary's business community to connect with the activity they want to check out.
