Long term partnerships lead to great things for the business community

Airdrie Economic Development has built a number of collaborative partnerships throughout the years, including an extremely valuable partnership with Community Futures Centre West. Together, our teams work strategically to provide initiatives and programs that contribute positively to the Airdrie business community. Between working together within the Airdrie Business Resource Partnership (ABRP), and collaborating on the widely successful SMARTstart Entrepreneurial Training Program, our partnership with Community Futures has enhanced the service delivery level available to businesses in Airdrie.

Most recently, our friends at Community Futures Centre West have launched their inaugural NEXTstep Summit – a business growth conference for companies who have been in business for three or more years and with annual sales between $500,000 and $3,000,000.

We are pleased to announce that our partnership with Community Futures continues to grow, and we will be a proud sponsor for the upcoming conference, set to be hosted from April 30 – May 2 in Canmore, Alberta. Our team is excited about this conference and would like to congratulate Community Futures on delivering a program that is meant to fill a gap in service for businesses three years and older.

In addition, we would like to help up to two local Airdrie businesses in attending. Are you interested? Enter your name into our draw for a chance to win 50% off your conference registration.
