Small Business Week: Business Resources for Women

In support of Women's History Month and Small Business Week we would like to introduce our amazing female entrepreneurs to some invaluable resources tailored to their needs.

Alberta Women Entrepreneurs

Dedicated to the development, expansion, and promotion of women's entrepreneurship. Alberta Women Entrepreneurs provides tools and resources to women across Alberta to help them achieve their goals and grow their businesses.
They connect women with access to capital, training and workshops, business advising, and loans programs. As the business landscape evolves they have also added supports for women looking to grow their businesses and how to expand into new markets through their progressive growth programs: BOLD Leadership and Strategic Edge Leadership for Growth.

The 51

Women make up less than 25 per cent of directors on Canadian boards, and only 19.4 per cent of partners at Canadian venture capital firms are women. The result? Since 2014, only 10 per cent of Canadian venture capital investment deals involved shaking hands with a woman.

With 30 per cent of Alberta’s tech start-ups founded or co-founded by women, our province leads the nation in women’s entrepreneurship. By uniting Canada’s untapped women’s wealth, we can create critical mass – making Canada the new centre for women-powered capital.

The 51 is a platform where current and aspiring investors connect to democratize access to capital for women and bring about social change. It provides opportunities to acquire tools, practice skills, and build financial confidence.
