Dare to do things differently: Power up your growth

The economic recovery has brought new challenges for Canadian entrepreneurs. High on the list are inflation, worker shortages and supply chain challenges. Can we find better ways of working? Certainly. Business owners are finding ways to succeed despite these challenges. They are also making their businesses more inclusive and sustainable, while driving the Canadian economy. See how it’s being done, as we all celebrate the passion, daring and impact of Canada's dreamers and doers during BDC Small Business Week 2022.
