Mini Business Profile
Canmore Business and Tourism encouraged the Two Cowboys to feature Canmore's up and coming businesses. We've produced a few mini-profiles to introduce you to the energy that is making Canmore such a great place to live, work, play, and ultimately launch successful businesses. We are proud to showcase the best of what is on offer in the Bow Valley.
E=MC2: Centre for Business Excellence
The Centre for Business Excellence CoWork space was founded in 2015 by Elaine McPherson. It’s always been her vision to create a space where small independent businesses could work & co-exist together, sharing resources and minimizing costs.
Early in 2014, as her team strategized for its future growth, they decided to re-evaluate and subsequently implement the shared office space concept, which is often referred to today as ‘CoWork’, ‘business incubator’, or ‘‘accelerator’ space.
These spaces are becoming more and more popular for people that choose lifestyle with their entrepreneurial endeavours. It usually includes a beautiful central space for entrepreneurs, freelancers, non-profits and remote employees to work, meet and network. It’s a modern & shared office experience with private and open concept facilities that include all amenities for work-life balance in a town or city.
The Bow Valley has a deep rooted history of adventurists and environmental leaders. These are people that consistently aim high and continually push limits to achieve greatness. It also has a high concentration of senior business leaders and professionals that make the valley home, but operate in Calgary or elsewhere in a main business centre. This centre is their office, away from the office.
The Centre for Business Excellence provides space for flexibility, creativity, privacy or collaborative session, lunch and learn seminars, development programs and general networking events. It is not just a space, but a meeting place where you go for networking and advice on how to launch your business, or make your next idea the big one.
There are flexible use options such as a drop-in, or more affordable monthly and annual memberships to the centre.
We look forward to a lot of entrepreneurial energy at the Centre for Business Excellence.
