    • Directory listing— A feature on our public directory. The only business directory in Calgary that features local, impact-driven businesses. 
    • The Best Dang Networking Events in YYC— We come together only 4 times a year as an entire network, so we make it special. Quality over quantity. Bonfires, music, roasting marshmallows, tea, meditation, drumming, smudging, yoga, and storytelling from entrepreneurs in the network. This ain't your dad's networking event. Nourishment for your head and your heart – come for the business knowledge, contacts and resources, stay for the inspiration and sense of belonging, you've finally found your people.
    • Capacity Building Workshops (Virtual)— Monthly online workshops with experts on topics including living wage, social procurement, social financing and more. The first 15 minutes are packed with info, the last 45 minutes is an optional Q&A. 
    • MasterGroup5— Join a working group of 4 other impact-driven entrepreneurs. Think of this as your ongoing support posse. This 4-month engagement will help you connect deeply with 4 peers who can help with support, problem solving, resources and connections. With this group, a solution is just a text or phone call away.
    • Council of Experts— Some of Calgary's leading marketing, branding, diversity & inclusion, technology, scale, and retail experts will be accessible via an online discussion platform. Think a subreddit group filled with local entrepreneurs all helping each other out. Sometimes help can be as simple as asking a question and getting an answer from someone who has already been there and done it.
