September Canadian CoWorker eMag. Kudos to Mississauga Recently Ranked in top 20 for Best Business Locations in Canada! Join us for our Thrive Thursday Feast: Explore Coworking & Starting Your New Business! Vol. 5 Issue 5

After an ‘eventful’ start to the September Back to Business/Back to School Year! This week we welcomed three co-op students from local high schools, Gonzaga and John Fraser as we are truly passionate about the future of work & learning in preparing our next generation leaders with the essential skills to thrive beyond high school.

Congratulations to the City of Mississauga, who recently ranked in top 20 for best business locations in Canada for seventh consecutive year. We proudly chose to locate in Mississauga because of its strategic location (proximity to the airport), business ecosystem and the outstanding support services from the Economic Development Office.

In this issue we celebrate MindShare Workspace member, Frank Manners, one of the talented Artists Exhibiting @ The Watershed Art Project, happening at the Etobicoke Civic Centre on Sunday, October 1st. Drop by and immerse yourself in his captivating artwork!

Special 5th Anniversary MindShare Workspace Holiday Party Invitation Dec 6, 5-8 PM ET, Please RSVP & Canadian CoWorker eMag. Top News Stories. Events and More! Vol. 4 Issue 6

Dear Colleague,
Happy Global Entrepreneurship Week! As I reflect back on 5 years since launching Canada’s first shopping mall-located coworking space I am grateful for the many entrepreneurs we served who took a chance on a new store concept that had never been done.
It’s always a bit daunting to take a leap of faith into the entrepreneurship world. Three key tips I offer startup founders: solve a real problem, do your homework to flush out a rock solid business plan and finally execute with passion.
Speaking of small business startups, here’s a great opportunity to tap into the Canada Digital Adoption Program. We are pleased to announce our partnership with Logics Technology in offering this very generous grant program to help you innovate and accelerate your growth. Read more in this issue below. Feel free to drop me a note robert@mindshareworkspace.com to arrange an exploratory meeting.
SAVE the DATE! We are excited to invite you to join us to celebrate our 5th Anniversary Holiday party Tuesday, December 6, 5 – 8 pm at the MindShare Workspace, Erin Mills Town Centre. Please RSVP. Join us to learn more about our expansion plans, enjoy local entertainment, network with community leaders & members over fine food and holiday cheer!

Dear Colleague,
Welcome to Summer! It’s great to be back after a busy month of travel to various professional learning conferences, scoping out prospective coworking locations and events throughout North America. One thing I realized is how much I missed our workspace, and in particular our community that is made up of passionate entrepreneurs who want to make an impact. It’s about the people and very much a family atmosphere.
On that note, do plan to join us tomorrow at 1pm for our monthly Friday Feast potluck! We are thrilled to have Mississauga’s very own, Patti Jannetta, singer & songwriter, who I’m honoured to be teamed up with on the committee hosting the 10th Anniversary Mississauga Italfest August 12-13 at Mississauga City Hall, Celebration Square.
