At the Calgary Chamber, we know that entrepreneurs and small business owners spend most of their time moving their businesses forward, creating jobs and building community. At the Small Business Awards, we celebrate Calgary’s best—their hard work, their economic contributions and their lasting impact on our city and beyond.
This year, the Calgary Chamber is celebrating the 40th Calgary Small Business Awards. We’re planning something big, and we want you to be a part of it!
Join us this fall for a full week celebrating all things small business!
Listen to business owners tell their growth story, and become inspired to grow your business.
Make new connections and potential new business leads.
Have in-depth conversations with business experts to help you overcome obstacles in your business.

Small businesses are the beating heart of our economy, accounting for over 95 percent of businesses in Calgary. From tech and agriculture to wellness services and restaurants, the diversity of business ventures is vast. But small businesses grapple with many of the same questions: how to market products and services in an increasingly globalized and digital economy? What to do about rising costs and razor-thin profit margins? How to attract and keep great people? Elevate unpacks these topics – and more – as we bring together Calgary’s small businesses for key conversations on things that matter to entrepreneurs and start-ups that are integral to our city’s prosperity and vibrancy.
