How to Identify Business Opportunities @ Webinar

This is the second part in a three-part Launch Your Dream Series for Immigrant Women: Exploring Entrepreneurship, Together! webinar series by Women’s Enterprise Centre. Click here to sign up for the whole series!

Entrepreneurship can be a great career option for immigrants to Canada, but the decision to launch a business in a new country can come with many questions about this new market.

Join Alpana Sharma, Women’s Enterprise Centre Business Advisor and Immigrant entrepreneur, who will teach you how to find new opportunities that match your skills and experience.

In this free interactive session, you’ll learn how to answer some key questions, like:

  • What skills can you use to start or grow a business?
  • How can you use these skills to identify new opportunities?
  • Will your business idea work in BC?
  • What do you need to know about your potential customers?
  • Where can you find support and information to research new opportunities?

You will also hear from Immigrant women entrepreneurs who will share how they zeroed in on the right business opportunity.

How to Find Sources of Funding as an Immigrant Entrepreneur @ Webinar

This is the final session in the Launch Your Dream Series for Immigrant Women: Exploring Entrepreneurship, Together! by Women’s Enterprise Centre. Click here to sign up for the whole series!

So, you’ve identified a great business opportunity and have done your market research. You’re almost ready to start your company! But, now you need money to make your dream a reality.

Women’s Enterprise Centre knows that accessing funding can be a barrier for many newcomer entrepreneurs, because they may have little to no credit history or few assets in their new home country.

Join Alpana Sharma, Women’s Enterprise Centre Business Advisor and immigrant entrepreneur for a free, interactive session to learn about the different types of funding support that can help make your business dreams a success!

As a development lender, Women’s Enterprise Centre can often provide business loans when other funders cannot because we look at your skills and opportunities, not just your credit score. And we’re part of a large network of funding sources that may be able to support you.

During this free, interactive session Alpana will share:

  • How to overcome barriers to funding for immigrant entrepreneurs
  • Funding programs available to support immigrant entrepreneurs in BC
  • What you will need to apply for funding

March 16 | 10am to 11am PT | Free Webinar

Join Women’s Enterprise Centre for this session to chat about funding opportunities. Their panelists will share how accessing funds at the right time helped them in business growth and success.
