StrikeUP Conference for Women Entrepreneurs

March 2. 2022

Join us for StrikeUP Canada 2022

Tomorrow (Thursday, March 3rd, 2022) we will go live at 10 AM EST. to present the second annual edition of our StrikeUP Canada digital conference event for women entrepreneurs. It is FREE to register—and even if you can’t join us live, if you sign up by midnight tonight you will have access to the conference recording up to December 31st, so you can enjoy all of the StrikeUP sessions at your leisure.

The theme of StrikeUP 2022 is: DECISION POINTS FOR GROWTH. It’s time to mobilize, connect and drive momentum for all Women-owned and Women-led entrepreneurs across the country. With the support of co-presenting sponsors ScotiaBank and EDC, and with our event partners Square, Shopify, NACCA, Innovative Solutions Canada and BDC, and the entire StrikeUP Canada community, we could not be more excited about this year’s main event, as we kick of international Women’s month and #IWD2022.

Why attend?

  • Keynotes from headliners Amber Mac, Jenn Harper (Founder & CEO, Cheekbone Beauty Cosmetics) and Joanna Griffiths (Founder & CEO, Knix)
  • Inspiring speakers and panelists we’ve brought together to share insights, learning and empowerment (including a fantastic Indigenous entrepreneurship panel)
  • Connectivity: we’ve added new functionality for networking, collaboration and conversation-building, plus we’re delivering the conference with simultaneous translation.

As our Executive Director Wendy Curtis said, “Women entrepreneurs are raising the bar, breaking glass ceilings, building new bridges and leading Canada’s reopening, recovery and prosperity. StrikeUP is our platform to unite women entrepreneurs and the women entrepreneurship ecosystem to learn from one another, work together, and move forward with a united vision and approach for equitable, inclusive and sustainable growth for the future.”
