Panel topic: Making a splash in international markets

Canada has a unique geography, ringed by a single international border and three oceans. It’s easy to feel disconnected from the rest of the world and the exciting developments in international markets.


  • What unique challenges do Canadian entrepreneurs face in accessing international markets?
  • What special challenges are faced by entrepreneurs in smaller communities?
  • Who has found innovative ways to surmount the geographical and psychological barriers separating us from international markets?

Light refreshments will be served.
