These two day online workshops based in Alberta are held to provide you with an introduction to entrepreneurship and the resources available to successfully pursue your business venture. Whether you have a new business idea that you would like to pursue, or would like help growing your existing business, these workshops will help you understand the steps necessary to achieve your goals.

At each workshop, experts will share information about what it means to be an entrepreneur, how to identify markets and business opportunities, analyzing the competition, protecting yourself against risks and the different sources of capital that are available. Additionally, each session will include time for group discussion, networking and one on one advice about your business. After attending a workshop, you will be connected with people who can help you proceed with your idea and will have access to the resources necessary to succeed.

Workshops are offered free of charge to all Alberta Métis. Check back at a later date to see if we will be offering a workshop if an area near you!

All workshops include a 1 hour lunch break for attendees.

Networking begins at 9:00 AM and workshops conclude at 4:00 PM each day.
