Dear business community,

During this difficult time the Scarborough Business Association remains committed to helping you network, learn and find opportunity.

We have made some commitments to help you through this disruption. Please visit a list of our diverse business disruption programming here. Now in Stage 3 reopening we are planning our next phase of community contribution - and we welcome your ideas!

We will get through together if we are united as a business community. Help each other. Learn from each other. And plant the seeds so we can hit the ground running to help the economy  recover.

United we stand Scarborough! - Andrea Hazell, President, SBA | Register here for our Sept. 30 Cyber Breakfast.

The SBA VLOG: Celebrating Scarborough Business!

Netwyn Place CEO Kula Sellathurai shut the doors of his entrepreneurial workspace when COVID-19 first hit. But through the experience, he re-energized his commitment to community and built new business himself to help the company through difficult times. Kula has great lessons for all in this short video and proves once again the resilience of the Scarborough business community.

We feature a new SBA member video every second week. If you have interest in becoming involved in this project, please reach out to info@scarboroughbusinessassociation.com
