Canada is at the forefront of business excellence. Our country is home to some of the world's great entrepreneurs. But far too often, they don't get the credit or exposure they deserve. That's why we started Bet On Canada.
Bet On Canada is an opportunity for these builders to tell their stories and inspire the next generation of Canadian business leaders.
Participants in the day long virtual summit learned about building great businesses from the people who have done it.
