Calling ALL Vancouver Entrepreneurs!

Press Release
take a day off to work "on" your business, not in it.
Calling all Vancouver entrepreneurs!
This is a must attend event if you want to grow your business.
CRAVEbusiness is a social and resource network for stylish innovators who own their own business or dream of starting one. Through one-on-one consulting, workshops, and red-carpet access to sage and savvy experts, CRAVEbusiness gives you a fresh take on designing your work life.
All registrants will have the opportunity to submit a profile of their business to have it reviewed by a panel of experts (click here to get started).
In Spring 2009, CRAVEbusiness’s SHOP Symposium series marks its third year of providing an inspirational, educational, one-day conference designed to support independent business owners. Attendees include retailers, spa and gym owners, travel agents, yoga teachers, creatives, self-employed service providers, and consultants of different stripes.
The only conference of its kind, SHOP Symposium/09 teaches practical skills, offers wise encouragement, and builds camaraderie. This is accomplished through expert speakers, panel discussions, breakout sessions and vendors whose services support the unique needs of business owners not affiliated with large corporations or chains. “Independent businesses keep the marketplace diverse and add character and soul to our communities,” comments CRAVEbusiness founder, Melody Biringer, herself a life-long entrepreneur and independent business owner.
“Independent owners are particularly courageous. They need a community to support them, and this is the purpose of SHOP Symposium/09.”
