Local Expert Blog: Small Biz – Big Buzz Expo

Saturday October 10th, 2015, 1:00pm


Hey Windsor-Essex, Celebrate Small Business Month this October with the WindsorEssex Small Business Centre!!

Did you know that October is Small Business Month all across Canada? It’s a month dedicated to recognizing the important contributions entrepreneurs make to the economy and their local communities.

According to Statistics Canada, there are over 20,000 small and medium-sized businesses operating locally in Windsor-Essex. The vast majority are micro- and small- businesses: 85 per cent having fewer than 10 employees, eagerly striving to build our economy. Each and every day, these hard-working entrepreneurs and business owners make enormous contributions to our local economy by creating jobs and generating economic growth that keep our communities prosperous. Small business is truly at the heart of our local economy.

In celebration of Small Business Month we invite you to attend the Small Biz – Big Buzz Expo presented by the WindsorEssex Small Business Centre to be held at the Water’s Edge Event Centre in Windsor on Oct. 22 from 5 pm to 9 pm. The Small Biz – Big Buzz Expo will be a showcase of diverse small businesses from across the region, including food, fashion, beauty, art and home goods. Local restaurants and cafes will join us by offering up tasting bites and beverages and live music by local musician Crissi Cochrane will be enjoyed by all who attend.

While the event is a showcase of diverse small businesses, there will be plenty of opportunity to network with local entrepreneurs, business professionals and the community at large. The Small Biz-Big Buzz Expo also provides a great opportunity to raise awareness of the opportunities available to entrepreneurs in the region and therefore individuals can drop in to learn more about the services available through the Small Business Centre to support the development of new and existing small businesses in the region.

So mark it down! Thursday, Oct. 22, 2015 — Come out and celebrate Small Business Month with us and celebrate the vitality of our local small businesses and entrepreneurs in the region.
