Taking your business beyond borders: Truths and myths of exporting

Wednesday, September 25 | 3:30 PM - 6:00 PM

ATB Entrepreneur Centre, Edmonton

A unique event for women entrepreneurs.


Who says you have to be BIG to go global? Or that you have to make and ship goods across the border to engage in exporting activities? 

There are several myths around exporting that often prevent women from engaging in exporting activities. We’re about to break those myths and introduce you to business owners who’ve been there, done that – and to a community of professionals who help companies expand into new markets.

If you are a women business owner or company leader who is interested in exporting but aren’t sure how to begin the process or what support is available to you, come join us for the Women in Trade. This is your chance to connect with other women entrepreneurs and women in trade and finance – all in one place.

  • Networking – wine and cheese 
  • Panel Discussion – The truths and myths of exporting
  • Trade Fair
    • Meet the ecosystem that’s supporting women entrepreneurs and their growth ambition, and get access to:
      • Opportunities – such as supplier diversity programs and women-focused trade missions that are available to help you break into global markets
      • Key contacts from ATB, EDC (Export Development Canada), CTSC (Canada Trade Commissioners Services), BDC (Business Development Bank of Canada) and AWE (Alberta Women Entrepreneurs) 
      • Finance professionals that can help you finance your growth
      • Business women just like you who have found export success

Seating is limited. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn how to achieve success on the global stage.

This event is hosted by ATB Financial, BDC and EDC. While there is no cost to attend however we appreciate you bringing a food donation to the Edmonton Food Bank.
