We are honouring and celebrating Canadian entrepreneurs, micro & small businesses, giggers, and side hustlers all month long. We will be hosting a series of events, highlighting how Interac can help enhance your business.

Interac Innovation Focus Series

The Interac Innovation Series are both live and webinar formats to help businesses specifically with topics in the payments space. Through this series, we provide some key insights and takeaways to help attendees, their business and ultimately their bottom line. During this Small Business Week, we will be hosting two webinars.

For the first, we have partnered with Restaurants Canada to take a look at the impact of changing consumer behaviors in the foodservice industry. During the webinar on October 17th, we’ll provide insights into:

  • The changing foodservice industry landscape,
  • How the digital economy and mobile devices have and will continue to transform the industry
  • Milennials – who they are and how they’re driving new expectations and demanding change
  • Different approaches to meeting the needs of your current guests and preparing for the guests of tomorrow

The second webinar will be held on October 18th and will be focusing on how micro and small businesses manage money. The ways small businesses accept payments can have a big influence on cashflow, causing financial strain. Interac’s Business Payments team will talk about:

  • The cost and business impact of processing cheques for micro and small businesses
  • Tools and processes to consider to help with cash flow
  • Questions to consider to help optimize money management
