Small Business, Big Ideas, this upcoming Small Business Week (October 15 to 21, 2023)

Small businesses have always been the backbone of Grimsby’s community and economy. Against the compounding challenges of the pandemic, our local businesses continue to develop new ideas, create more jobs, and facilitate resilience within our incredible community. 

As part of the annual Small Business Week’s Small Business, Big Ideas campaign from October 15 to 21, 2023, we are working alongside the Ontario Chamber of Commerce to highlight the impact and potential of small business innovation, and the importance of supporting businesses like yours, beyond recovery and towards evolution. 

We invite all small businesses to join and collaborate in our Small Business, Big Ideas promotional video that showcases Ontario’s diverse and dynamic small business climate while shedding light on the visions that make small businesses possible. 

To do so, we’d like to invite YOU and other businesses across our Chamber Network to submit a 30-to-40-second video answering one of two questions below and submitting your video file to The promotional video will kick off the campaign on October 15, 2023. Submissions are being accepted until October 9, 2023. 

  1. What inspired your business? 
  1. How do you connect to your community? 

If you have any questions/concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to us for clarification! We’d love to see some of our amazing businesses showcased in this video, so don’t be shy and share your business proudly!

Please note that due to the volume of small businesses, only selected video entries will be included in the primary campaign video.
