Step 13: Get Support
In British Columbia entrepreneurs are fortunate that so much support exists to help them launch and grow a successful business. That being said, some of the best advice and guidance you can receive will come from experienced business owners themselves.
Joining a local business group or networking group is a great way to access experienced entrepreneurs, as well as to find potential clients. Here are some organizations you might consider joining:
- Local Chamber of Commerce
- Local Business Improvement Association
- Women’s business groups and organizations
Attending business events and conferences will help you learn new skills and connect with like-minded people. For a list of upcoming events across British Columbia, see Small Business BC’s event calendar.
