Small Business, BIG IDEAS

Small Business Big Ideas

Small Business Week October 15 to 21, 2023

Small businesses have always been the backbone of Simcoe County community and economy. Against the compounding challenges of the pandemic, these very businesses continue to develop new ideas, create more jobs, and facilitate community resilience. 

As part of the annual Small Business Week’s Small Business, Big Ideas campaign from October 15 to 21, 2023, the Ontario Chamber of Commerce and Barrie Chamber of Commerce are working 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 these businesses possible.  To do so, we’d like to invite businesses across the 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. We are accepting submissions until October 9, 2023. 

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

Please note that due to the volume of small businesses, only selected video entries will be included in the primary campaign video. By submitting the video, you grant the Ontario Chamber of Commerce permission to reproduce, copy, modify, create derivatives in whole or in part, or otherwise use the Picture(s) or any part thereof in combination with or as a composite of other matter, including, but not limited to, text, data, images, photographs, illustrations, animation and graphics, video or audio segments of any nature, in any and all media or embodiment or formats now known or hereafter devised, and generally all means of exploitation not limited to any form of expression for any purpose whatsoever.
