RBC Black Entrepreneurship Info Session and Networking Event

In July 2020, RBC made a five-year commitment of $100MM to fund small business loans for Black Entrepreneurs. In addition to this commitment, we promised to ensure that Black Entrepreneurs get access to our network of Experts and Partners to further their growth and development. This is an opportunity to meet with Industry Leaders and Mentors to obtain information and resources regarding what it takes to start, finance, and run a business successfully in Canada.

You are invited to join us for an info session focused on providing resources and connections for Black Entrepreneurs. Dinner will be served along with a variety of non-alcoholic beverages
