Strategies for Building Communities of Support
Don’t go it alone! Get the support you need, minus the burnout.
A lot rests on the shoulders of entrepreneurs – but it doesn’t have to! There are organizations, resources, and people in your network who can help. All you need to do is ask.
This BBL is all about the ‘why?’ and ‘how?’ of asking for help. We’ll walk through WEKH ‘s new Sharing Platform and hear from Paulina Cameron , CEO of the Forum for Women Entrepreneurs , on how you can leverage your social capital to take advantage of available resources and avoid the temptation to go it alone.
Paulina Cameron is an impact-driven leader, working in the spaces of entrepreneurship, youth, and gender equality. Previously a Director for the BC, AB & Yukon team at Futurpreneur Canada, Paulina is the CEO of the Forum for Women Entrepreneurs , where she leads a team that supported the launch of thousands of new businesses across Western Canada.
