About this Event
Wood Buffalo has much more to offer, and this event will act as a ‘launching pad’ for new ideas and innovations in our region.
Launch Wood Buffalo will be taking place at Keyano College on March 14th, 2020. The event will consist of a number of hands-on workshops to help potential entrepreneurs launch successful businesses. There will also be a networking session with local entrepreneurs who will discuss how they became successful, followed by a panel on available resources for inventors and entrepreneurs. Finally, there will be a pitch competition that will allow any community member to pitch a business idea for a chance to win prizes.
