LinkUp is back for the 4th year, and 2019 is bringing the most exciting event to date! We wanted to do things a bit different, while still maintaining the same goals: to connect Kamloops entrepreneurs to all the resources and programs available to make them successful. That’s why with this year’s theme, Adapt and Innovate: The Future of Local Business, we are connecting entrepreneurs to resources they need to innovate or expand their business, as well as giving an inside look at other entrepreneurs’ experiences through these processes.
Year by year, the world of business and entrepreneurship is changing, and with that change comes the need to innovate. Innovation isn’t just incorporating new technology; it can also be introducing new products, improving your existing services, implementing new marketing techniques, accessing new programs to expand your business’ reach or anything that makes your business run smoother and more efficient. This year, we want to connect entrepreneurs to these opportunities by putting them in a room with the local, provincial and federal organizations that offer programs, incentives or other resources. However, we’re not stopping there!
With LinkUp 2018 being a sold-out event, we want to offer a new style to the 2019 event to keep things fresh. So fresh that we had to change our logo colour to keep up! This year, by popular demand, we are offering three roundtable discussions from local entrepreneurs to compliment the two panels from local, provincial and federal organizations, as well as the tradeshow and networking times. The roundtables will feature entrepreneurs who are at different stages of their business, have incorporated some innovation in their business, or have expanded their business using various resources. We will, of course still have our fantastic lunch served by Romeo’s kitchen, and will be rounding out the event with an all-star keynote that will be speaking to innovation and the future of local business.
Remember, LinkUp 2018 was a sold-out event.
