Tri-Cities Chamber Small Business Week

For more than 30 years the Business Development Bank of Canada has organized Small Business Week. It’s a chance to pay tribute to Canadian entrepreneurs, and everything that they do. This year, the event takes place from October 16 – 22, and the theme is: Power Up Your Business. Invest. Innovate. Grow.

The Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce is getting on board with some Small Business Week events of its own. The week’s events are very affordable – two are even free – and a $55 pass gets you into all five.
