Are you a new entrepreneur? Are you thinking of starting a business? Do you want to network with entrepreneurs in the community? Join us for the seventh annual New Entrepreneurs of Ottawa Networking (NEON) Event! NEON brings small business owners together with the goal to find inspiration in one another and at the same time obtain relevant information.  

A panel of guest entrepreneurs share their experience and answer questions.


  • Karla Briones, serial entrepreneur and New Entrepreneur Canada
  • Shauna Pollock, Blue Sky School
  • Scottie Irving, the Pep Tides
  • Andrew Ralph, Signal 88 Security

This annual event is organized by the Ottawa Public Library with a network of small businesses. This year's NEON event was a collaboration with the following partners:  Invest Ottawa, Ottawa Community Loan Fund, Futurpreneur, CollabSpace, IgniteAC, World Skills, and In-TAC.

Following the panel, there will be a trade show during which attendees can learn about local organizations who provide services to the business community and who offer their support services to entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs. This will be the perfect opportunity to network with fellow entrepreneurs over refreshments!   

We hope to see you there!
