Small Business Week – Collaborate With Your Community

Posted by Lisa on 10/16/2017


Small Business Week In Canada

The third week of October is Small Business Week here in Canada. It is a time for those in the small business sector to seek recognition or learn about business opportunities in their area. This year we are shining a spotlight on community involvement.  We try to collaborate with local organizations and events that involve art and design.  Recently we sponsored FLUXIBLE a UX Design conference with a theme of art meeting tech.

This year we provided in kind signage and Peter had the opportunity to present at a “BROWN BAG LUNCH SESSION”

Later this month we will sponsoring the Grand River Film Festival.  This year’s theme is about tech design which is something we are passionate about as we are always looking for ways to innovate and create new trends in the sign industry.

The Importance Of Community Involvement

As a small business we think it is very important to be involved in our local community.  You can find us at Greater Kitchener Waterloo Chamber Of Commerce events, local conferences, community gatherings, charity fundraisers and more.

We understand the importance of community involvement and we constantly look for ways to connect with others in the area.  It helps us understand what people are looking for, know what they can expect from us, connect with our peers and find out what everyone thinks of our brand.  It assists in finding out what is working us and where we can improve. All of these factor in our future goals and help us concentrate on our efforts locally.
