TechImpact is focused on tech workforce development as one of our key objectives. We feel that the strength of our industry is directly tied to the quality, diversity, size and strength of its professionals, including new graduates and current workers. Because we support workforce diversity so strongly, we’re also firm believers in the benefits of encouraging and celebrating female entrepreneurs.
There’s no denying that there are some incredible female entrepreneurs in New Brunswick, particularly in the tech industry. That’s why we’re pleased to participate in an upcoming panel and networking event as part of Women’s Entrepreneurship Week, taking place October 24, 2019 in Saint John. As part of a global movement to celebrate women in entrepreneurship, the event aims to share ideas and bring together the champions working to support growing new companies.
Cathy Simpson, TechImpact CEO, will serve as the event’s moderator. Panelists will share their personal experiences as entrepreneurs with a particular emphasis on growth, scaling and funding. We have great sponsors in NBIF, Economic Development Greater Saint John and UP+GO.
As we reflect on the APEC Research Report on Digital Technology Firms in Atlantic Canada, we are reminded of the challenges that come with growth whether inside the digital economy or outside of it. Our panelists have experience with growth and will tell their stories.
