Community Futures Central Kootenay is teaming up with the Castlegar and District Chamber of Commerce for a special Business After Business event.

On Oct. 22, Community Futures and the chamber invite small business owners to join them at Crumbs Bakery Café to celebrate Small Business Week and Community Futures Central Kootenay’s 30th anniversary.

“It’s an opportunity for business owners in the Castlegar area to get together and network. It’s an opportunity for us to partner with Crumbs Bakery Café, which is one of our past clients, and we’re hoping to educate people a bit about Community Futures,” said Andrea Wilkey, executive director with Community Futures Central Kootenay.

Community Futures’ mandate is to help entrepreneurs be successful and to help communities be economically healthy.

Examples of support that we provide to business include helping businesses start up or grow, we offer business loans, we offer self-employment training, and we also provide access to business counseling,” said Wilkey.

She encourages small business owners to come out, help celebrate Small Business Week, and meet other small business owners in the community.
