According to Statistics Canada, the number of self-employed in Alberta jumped by 16,700 in December from the previous month. For many, the journey from employee to business owner can be a tricky one.

Entrepreneurs are vulnerable, especially in the early stages of launching their business and in the current economic environment. But there are potential advantages to starting a business during tough times: talented people are more available, some costs of doing business are reduced, and customers in the energy industry are motivated to identify cost savings and improve production efficiencies.

IMD and INSEAD Alberta Alumni, are pleased to invite you to an exclusive panel on Entrepreneurship. We are honored to offer a panel with exceptional guests:

  • Peter Josty, IMD Alumni, Executive Director at THECIS
  • Gary Haley, IMD Alumni, CEO of Vantage Foods Inc
  • Stephen Lougheed, IMD Alumni, CEO at Alberta Innovates Technology Futures
  • Adam Janikowski, INSEAD Alumni, Executive Director at CIBC World Markets
  • Brad Johns, INSEAD Alumni, Partner, Yaletown Partners Inc

Please contact Carmine Fiume ([email protected]) to confirm your attendance.
