Startup and Small Business Online Events Happening in June 2020

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we are compiling a list of webinars this month instead of the usual face to face events. We will be focusing on webinars led by organizations in Toronto and Southwestern Ontario that we think will be useful to anyone in the startup and small business community. These are all free of charge. If you’re hosting an event or come across one that you think should be included here, feel free to contact us with your suggestion(s).
