Being an entrepreneur is challenging at the best of times. Together with the uncertainties of a global pandemic and the challenges of working in a physically-distanced world, for many women entrepreneurs, the past few months have dramatically changed the game.
The Women Entrepreneurship Knowledge Hub (WEKH) has been working to support women entrepreneurs through the COVID-19 pandemic (this report highlights their findings from engaging with 500 women in the past weeks).
As the Eastern Ontario Hub of the WEKH national network, Impact Hub Ottawa is co-hosting a series of virtual discussions for Women entrepreneurs and organizations who support them:
May 12th – Indigenous Women Entrepreneurs & their supporters (register here)
May 19th – Indigenous & Non-Indigenous Women Entrepreneurs & their supporters
At these Zoom roundtables, women entrepreneurs and the organizations that support them will come together in the spirit of collaboration to share stories, experiences, challenges and resources so that we can better understand the barriers and gaps experienced by women entrepreneurs in Eastern Ontario.

Katie LeClair, Invest Ottawa
