Coming Spring 2020
What is PowerUp?
PowerUp! Taber is an entrepreneurial conference designed to inspire, inform, and empower the entrepreneurs of Southern Alberta. This two day event will bring together businesses owners, entrepreneurs and business resources from all over Southern Alberta to connect and learn from one another through a variety of networking and learning opportunities. Find resources, gain information, recharge your ambitions, and energize your ideas into action at PowerUp! Taber!
This year we will host the event on November 7 and 8, 2019. The event will kick off with a networking reception, Happy Hour Handshakes, on November 7 to give entrepreneurs a chance to network with one another and connect with business support services and resources in Southern Alberta. November 8 will be a full day of learning with inspiring speakers and break-out sessions that are relevant to businesses of all stages and in a variety of industries.
2019 topics will focus on three aspects:
Start-Up – You have an idea, maybe you’re already trying it out, now it’s time to get serious, get inspired, and get to know other like-minded individuals.
Scaling Up – You’ve made it through the first few years and the challenges keep on coming, good challenges like how do you get the staff you need to keep up with growth and who can provide support and services to ease the load?
Success(ion) – You’ve been focused on your business and what it takes to make it a success, now is the time to think about what will happen in a time of disaster, death, or retirement.
PowerUp! Taber is brought to you by the Taber Regional Joint Economic Development Committee, a partnership of the Town of Vauxhall, Vauxhall and District Chamber of Commerce, Village of Barnwell, MD of Taber, Town of Taber, Taber and District Chamber of Commerce and Community Futures Chinook. The event was made possible by the original founders of the PowerUp! events in Alberta: ATB Financial, Business Link, and Alberta Economic Development, Trade and Tourism.
