No. The Peerpreneur sessions are free of cost to participants.

Business owners who currently run a small business in Alberta and who would like to build their network of support, share best practices and gain useful tips for success, and to brainstorm solutions to existing business challenges.

There will be a total of four 90 minute weekly video sessions (for a total of 6 hours), plus the opportunity for additional time for discussions online. Outside of scheduled sessions, participating business owners may require additional time to complete self-directed goals and objectives.

There are no formal consequences for dropping out of the program, however, we ask that only those who are serious and able to commit to all sessions apply.

Unfortunately, this may not be possible.

You should only share what you are comfortable with. All sessions will be moderated by a Business Link Small Business Strategist who will work diligently to ensure that the sessions are a safe and confidential place for participants to share their business ideas and challenges.

Each session will be facilitated by a Business Link Small Business Strategist. Our Strategists have extensive experience supporting small business owners and entrepreneurs and many of them are or have been entrepreneurs themselves!

The sessions will be held virtually via Microsoft Teams video chat so you can attend from anywhere, as long as you have a sufficient internet connection.

Each group will consist of approximately 5-10 small business owners. The cohorts will remain the same throughout the duration of the program.

Yes you can. However, preference may be given to new applicants.

It depends on the type and quantity of applications received. Cohorts are often based around common themes between applicants. Acceptance is not guaranteed and we often receive high levels of interest.
