From November 12 to 18, 2012, Canadians will celebrate Global Entrepreneurship Week with events designed to inspire young entrepreneurs to embrace innovation, imagination and creativity and inspire more people to consider entrepreneurship as a career. Here in Halton, the Halton Region Small Business Centre and HalTech, of which Sheridan is a partner, have planned an interactive series of workshops, panel discussions and presentations designed to put entrepreneurs on the right track for success.  Sheridan students will be admitted at no cost.

“We are pleased to be able to join with HalTech and other community partners to offer these top-notch Entrepreneurship Week events,” said Halton Regional Chair Gary Carr. “Celebrating and encouraging entrepreneurship and innovative businesses practices in Halton is one of our key priorities. These E-week events will provide a terrific learning experience and plenty of networking opportunities for people already in business, as well as those just now considering entrepreneurship as a career.”

Motivational speaker Sunjay Nath, Sheridan presidential advisor and media personality Ralph Benmergui and Ian Portsmouth, Profit Magazine publisher and editor are among the keynote speakers lined up for the week.

Presentation and seminar topics include leadership and growth, business plan basics, market research, perfecting a business pitch, and mastering social media. The week will end with a Business Tradeshow and Networking event. A complete schedule is available at www.halton.ca/businessevents.
