There will be two panel presentations. The first will feature local business development resource providers who will present the services they offer and explain how they help new entrepreneurs develop their business ideas.The second panel will consist of testimonials of inspiring immigrant entrepreneurs who have established businesses in Ottawa and are succeeding! They will share their journey into entrepreneurship and offer advice and tips on starting a business in Canada.

There will also be 15 booths of exhibitors who will showcase their programs, resources and be open to answering aspiring entrepreneurs’ questions. There will be plenty of time for networking between and after presentations.
