It was a brilliant week! I met so many great people, learned a lot, networked, connected and more!  So much excitement from many of the entrepreneurs taking part in this week.  Thank you for your participation, that is what made it successful.  We had over 2,000 people taking part in the 52 events we held during the week!

I want to thank our sponsors who made it possible:

AWCCU Financial, Durham Workforce Authority, Ministry of Ontario and Spark Centre for your sponsorship either in financial or time contribution

Thank you to Bereskin & Parr, The Region of Durham and FedDev for your partnership contribution.


Thank you to the Town of Ajax, City of Oshawa, City of Pickering and the Town of Whitby for your support in locations, advertising, hosting and promotion of the week!  It’s a pleasure to work with you all!



Below is a collage of some photos from the week!

Thank you to our presenters, sponsors, host locations and attendees for making it what it is!

When we started this calendar of events in 2015 (different program in 2013 and 2014) we wanted the whole region to take part, all the business organizations, if they had events or activities targeted towards business – add it to this week and let’s collectively promote it!  It has grown so much and we are so excited about the future of Durham.  We are on the edge of a ton of future growth opportunities,  our population forecast is over a million in the coming years – that must mean more businesses are coming here too.  It is our time to shine!
