Overcoming barriers to growth: optimal strategies for developing your business

For many Canadian entrepreneurs, growth is an integral part of the company life cycle. Rarely linear and largely unpredictable, a company’s growth often comes with challenges. How do Canada’s entrepreneurs manage to carve out their own path to success?

Join one of Canada’s leading chief economists, Pierre Cléroux, as he shares new research findings into the challenges SMEs face as they grow their businesses and the strategies to overcome them.

Following Mr. Cléroux’s talk, Michel Leblanc, President and CEO of the Board of Trade, will moderate a panel of local entrepreneurs who will discuss their experience and their means of ensuring the success of their growth process.

This will be a unique opportunity to:

  • Hear the results of a study from which your company can benefit
  • Get inspired by the direct experience of entrepreneurs who have enjoyed success along their growth path
