The Board brings together the region’s rising entrepreneurs and established business leaders for an exchange of best practices and idea sharing on how to fulfill basic needs and even consider going global. Successful small businesses form the backbone of a thriving economy. But competition gets fiercer as rapidly advancing technology shrinks barriers that restricted small and medium-sized enterprises to serving customers close to home. Fortunately, that same technology paves the way for local SMEs to fuel their own growth by affordably expanding their operations and reaching customers in new markets.
What to expect:
The 12th Small Business Summit will connect growth-ready SMEs to these options and strategies that will take them to the next level.

Last year, we asked the Toronto region to embrace the global spotlight. Many eyes are now squarely focused on what our region can—and will—deliver, but our work isn’t done. In an era marked by trade uncertainty and frayed institutions, the big and small successes of global cities display the strength found in communities that understand the benefits of co-operation. From a flourishing tech sector fuelled by powerful incubators, a global financial engine, not to mention world-leading AI research poised to revolutionize the world, it’s time for us to come together to advance the global region.

Leading global cities have world-class transportation systems that unlock their potential. Ours has failed to keep up. The result is congestion that keeps people and goods on roads too long, slowing prosperity and costing the region billions.
Inspired by these cities, and the Board's Superlinx proposal, our annual day of discussion and advocacy will bring together international and local experts to help shape the Ontario Government's transit uploading agenda.
Stay tuned for more details about speakers and topics.
