2018 marks the first year for Chestermere to host a Small Business Week conference and we are excited!
Why? Because this means that our business community is growing!

Why do we host small business week

Small business Week (October 14 – 19) is a time when business owners and entrepreneurs can come together to be reinvigorated and inspired. It’s a week for them to be celebrated and have an opportunity to learn new things that will help them grow professionally and personally.

Our week-long program includes a variety of sessions designed specifically with the small business owner in mind, as well as programming for aspiring entrepreneurs
