#TheStruggleisReal - Take 2

  • Global Business Centre 120 8 Avenue Southeast Calgary, AB, T2G 5P6 Canada (map)

Do you ever wonder if entrepreneurs get second chances? At our next #TheStruggleYYC night, you’ll hear about three entrepreneurs and business owners who survived tough situations, brushed themselves off and started all over again. Sometimes it takes more than a tweak or pivot, and these panelists have had the courage to go back to the drawing board. So if you’re thinking about your Plan B (or Plan E, F, G), you won’t want to miss this conversation!

Moderator:
Kim Smith, Senior Manager of Community Partnerships, formerly at the helm of Capital Ideas

Panelists:
Chris Prefontaine, CEO of Fratello Coffee Roasters
Ron Bettin, Co-founder of ReSourceYYC
Karen Unland, President of Alberta Podcast Network

#TheStruggleYYC

They say that being an entrepreneur is a roller coaster ride, but you probably hear more about the highs than the lows. The struggle is indeed very real. We’re creating a safe space to share the real and raw stories of starting and running a business. The good, the bad, the ugly. And those little moments that keep you going against the odds. Because you don’t have to go it alone.
