Hong Kong’s position as a prosperous international business and financial centre has been built upon the entrepreneurial spirit of its people. Through the years, Canadian entrepreneurs have made an important contribution to that success.

The Canadian Chamber of Commerce Entrepreneur and Small Business (ESBC) Committee was founded in 2004 to develop and foster an entrepreneurial spirit within the Chamber, among its members and in the community at large.

The Committee organizes a variety of events that allow

past, present and future entrepreneurs including:

Micro and Small Enterprises (MSEs) as well as

SOHO (Small Offices Home Offices)

to exchange experiences, seek mentors, and educate themselves about the challenges they face establishing and operating a business in Hong Kong, China and in the Asia Pacific Region.
