ABM Without Borders are intensive online connector events designed to accelerate business, especially in times of social distancing.

Facilitated by ABM’s custom software, they offer ten curated 20-minute online appointments over the course of four hours.

These pre-scheduled business development appointments are a forward-looking and efficient way to engage one-on-one with key decision makers otherwise not accessible. With national and international reach, ABM Without Borders catapults members into a diverse environment of ideas, shared knowledge and opportunities.

Each ABM Without Borders is curated according to a specific focus, from opportunities in reclamation to land use planning to marketing services. These focuses are determined by members of the ABM Network that come to the table with specific interests and priorities, which we then use to curate an event. Contact us if you do not see what you are looking for!

While these events are scheduled for a specific date, they are much more flexible than the ABM Classics and, because of how focused they are, our curation process is even more intensive. This means that depending on who registers, and what factors allow everyone to operate at the top of their game, these dates are re-negotiated among the participants to achieve maximum results. We are in close contact with all of our actively business matching ABM Members and once you are registered, you become part of a dynamic and focused group of key decision makers with aligning business interests. You are productively engaged throughout the entire preparation and business development process and we work with you to ensure you move your goals forward.

Support and Ideas for Micro Start-Ups– Tuesday, October 27, 2020 – 9 am to 1 pm PDT

This event is focused on business models for small and micro business start-ups.

ABM is proud to present this event in partnership with the Women Entrepreneurship Knowledge Hub (WEKH). As stated in their Women Entrepreneurship Strategy, the full and equal participation of women in the economy is not just the right thing to do; it’s also good for the bottom line.

Only 16% of Canadian small and medium-sized businesses are owned by women. Only 1.4% are owned by Indigenous people. By increasing gender and racial equality, Canada has the potential to add over $150 billion in GDP.

In light of the pandemic which will disproportionately impact women and Indigenous communities, not to mention small businesses as a whole, WEKH and ABM call upon our network to rejuvenate and advance the Canadian economy and do so by supporting small and micro-sized start-ups.
