Didsbury’s Entrepreneurial Ecosystem

In 2021, we increased the number of support services provided to entrepreneurs and small businesses as well as newcomers. Through freshly  implemented Didsbury Economic Development, in collaboration with the Chamber of Commerce, we able to provide a variety of support tools including online tools, programs, resources and education opportunities for startups, growing and established businesses.

Furthermore, our red carpet grand opening tool will put your business on the map from day one. You bring the ribbon and we will bring the golden scissors for the ribbon cutting performed by our Mayor and/or Council (pending availability of elected officials) or the Town’s Strategic Team. Pictures and brief description of your business will be posted on all our social media platforms. We will treat you to a warm welcome by celebrating this major milestone of your business.
