​This is the week where we celebrate the job creators, innovators, entrepreneurs and businesses GLOBALLY in over 170 countries.

Events start at 9am on Monday, November 18, 2019 with an event to meet all the Durham Region’s networking organizations at the Whitby Centennial Building.  There are over 50 events with topics relating to Raising Capital, Understanding the impact of AI and emerging technologies, learning to market through text messaging, networking events and many more topics.  There is something for every business, budding entrepreneur or those interested in business. 

This year we have teamed up with our Regional Innovation Centre, Spark Centre, to add a stream of innovation and technology events alongside the brand new Do it in Durham App. 

You can download this on either the apple store or play store. The app is your one stop shop for the week and can be used to register for events, learn about the speakers and make notes from different workshops! 

We also rebranded and trademarked the name!
