At Women's Enterprise Centre, we're connecting with many Immigrant women who are exploring entrepreneurship in BC.
To support you, we've created a new Launch Your Dream webinar series for Immigrant women, to explore entrepreneurship together and help you match your strengths and experience with a strong business that can succeed in BC!
We'll answer your questions about how to start a business, who can help you, and what you need to know about this new market.
The series is hosted by Alpana Sharma, a WEC Business Advisor and an Immigrant entrepreneur who has operated her own import business successfully.
Alpana will explore some of the questions you should consider as a new entrepreneur in Canada, share resources and introduce you to the many organizations that can assist you along your journey to start, buy or grow your own business.
She’ll also host storytellers who will share their experiences as Immigrant entrepreneurs, and what they’ve learned along the way.
Join us for some or all of these free sessions! All sessions are from 10am to 11am PT and include downloadable resources:
