Over the years, thanks to the SÉO, I've benefitted from many resources, knowledge and training activities. My development officer has been extremely supportive, providing me with tools, business plan support, contacts and invaluable references. I was also able to take part in several networking events. These enabled me to meet other women entrepreneurs and to get in touch with people from different cultural backgrounds to exchange ideas. This has contributed to the growth of my business.
WHO ARE WE?
