Celebrating Entrepreneurship – Do It In Durham 2021 Riding the Waves

It’s no secret that the world has changed forever as has business and entrepreneurship. Do It In Durham is back for 2021 – virtual again and our theme is “Riding the Waves”.  Just like in surfing, businesses need to be able to ride the waves, fight the sharks and prepare for which waves to ride. 

Timing is everything – businesses need to look ahead and not just at their feet.  Do It In Durham is an opportunity for businesses to reflect on their business and the opportunities that lie ahead.

This year, we have over 35 ‘virtual’ events focused on businesses learning, connecting, networking and building their competitive advantage.  We have some leading edge topics such as podcasting, marketing funnels, lead generation online, Intellectual Property and Tech Ex – an expo of the brightest new tech businesses from Spark Centre.

Do It In Durham Entrepreneurship Week is a collaboration of Durham’s business support, educational and networking organizations who have come together to encourage and support entrepreneurs, job creators and innovators who create economic growth in Durham Region.

The week will be launched by John Henry, Regional Chair and CEO of Durham Region and closed by the Town of Whitby Mayor Don Mitchell.

“As doing business online becomes a reality and opportunity for many organizations, this week gives businesses up to date information, networking and resources about how to capitalize on this trend”, says Teresa Shaver, CEO of the Business Advisory Centre Durham. 

The Do It In Durham event series has always been about collaboration, celebration and support of our entrepreneurs who are ‘doing it Durham’  The week will also have events from local organizations such as Spark Centre, 1855 Whitby, Chambers of Commerce and Board of Trades to name a few.
