The following two topics were chosen for this initial event for their real and immediate value to SMEs:
1. Expanding Your Sales Geographically
Listen to industry experts who will share their companies’ experiences in successfully growing their revenues outside Canada. They will provide practical and proven approaches with slides and handouts outlining how to create the processes for explosive international sales.
2. Financing Your Growth Painlessly
A speed dating event allowing SMEs to speak directly “one on one” with numerous executives from different financing areas including:
· Angel and Venture Capital
· Government—Provincial and Federal
· Non-Bank Financial (such as factoring)
· Venture Debt Financing
Following these one-on-one meetings, attendee companies will be able to arrange additional meetings with the sources of financing to help obtain the funding they require.
A keynote luncheon speaker will focus on the sources of free funding for SMEs.
