SMARTstart is Airdrie’s award-winning entrepreneurial training program. It is a non-profit program that sets new businesses up for success by providing tools, training, and a mentor.

But we can’t do it without support from the local business community. Local business sponsorship means we can continue to help put new businesses on the pathway to success.
