The Canadian Council for Small Business and Entrepreneurship – (conseil Canadien de la PME et de l’entrepreneuriat – CCSBE/CCPME) is part of a global network of over 4,000 people dedicated to the advancement and development of small business and entrepreneurship.

Its annual conference brings together some of the best of Canada’s practitioners, academics, researchers, and public policy advocates in support of entrepreneurship.  Those who attend the conference are diverse in job responsibilities, education and experience.  What brings them together is a desire to support the objectives of the CCSBE/CCPME; to further the development of small business enterprises.   Hosting this conference will provide your institution with broad visibility and a guaranteed audience of entrepreneurship specialists.   

The goal of each CCSBE/CCPME annual conference must be to offer each attendee an opportunity to participate in and share experiences, not only to provide insights for small business development, but also to contribute to the participant’s own growth and development.

The conference platform “of providing a collaborative marketplace for the exchange of ideas, research and best practices among academics, practitioners and policy influencers for the benefit of Canadian small business and entrepreneurship will be the keystone of the conference.

Hosting the annual CCSBE/CCPME conference will deliver nation-wide benefits to the host organization. Besides developing research and practitioner collaboration to your institution, sponsoring the annual CCSBE/CCPME conference presents an opportunity to leverage media and provide exposure to your institutional commitment regarding management education and entrepreneurship.  Previous host institutions include some of Canada’s finest Universities. CCSBE/CCPME can help put your program on the map both in Canada and world wide through our affiliation with the International Council for Small Business.

Any Canadian University, College or Organization that is corporate member of CCSBE/CCPME or whose members are regular members of CCSBE/CCPME has, as one of its benefits, the opportunity to host the CCSBE/CCPME Annual Conference. Hosting offers the University, College or Organization, also hereafter called “hosting institution”, the opportunity to expand and enhance entrepreneurial knowledge and networks, publicize national linkages, expand its own entrepreneurial spirit in the surrounding region and potentially generate a revenue surplus for its own treasury. Each CCSBE/CCPME Annual Conference should accomplish these objectives as well as meet the broader objectives of CCSBE/CCPME.
