RIC Centre Events




Beyond Business Basics presents a fresh series with a fresh goal, aiming to reach out to members of the Peel Region community. It is a new collaboration between RIC Centre and the Peel ONE Network partners including Mississauga Business Enterprise Centre, Brampton Entrepreneur Centre, and Caledon Business Innovation Zone. Monthly evening seminars are delivered in the communities of City of Mississauga, City of Brampton, and Town of Caledon. Each month, the events rotate to a new city. One expert speaker leads each session with a presentation, followed by Q&A with the audience, and then networking.

By inviting expert speakers with real-world experience, entrepreneurs and small business owners can develop the skills to build a successful business. The series is split into three themes: Launching a Startup, Sales and Marketing for Startups, and Raising Startup Funding.
