Join us for the second session of our SMU in Action virtual engagement series, Under the Influencers: Entrepreneurs in Rural Communities.
This webinar features alumni who own local companies in industries including wine, beer, and cannabis within rural communities across Nova Scotia. Hear from alumni entrepreneurs about the challenges and opportunities they faced when starting companies in rural communities and what motivated them to create local startups and invest in community development.

The panel will be moderated by Ciaro Moxey BComm’20 and will also touch on how Saint Mary’s inspired the entrepreneurial mindset, the challenges of operating in highly regulated industries, and what prompted them to base their companies on the East Coast.
