"The FCBB team had high expectations about the event, and it ended up surpassing our expectations. Besides the informative sessions, the networking opportunity was second to none over the past few years for FCBB, as we met entrepreneurs, established businesses and we were introduced to institutions that ended up becoming important partners on our mission to foster business between Canada and Brazil for SMEs. Truly a great opportunity."

Definitely Beneficial for All Involved
"Insurance Bureau of Canada was invited to Think Canada to meet with representatives of the French Car-Pooling App “Bla Bla Car” (BBC) and assist with insurance questions. The conversation between IBC and BBC continues as we answer additional questions to assist them in their consideration to expand into the Canadian marketplace. Opportunities such as this are definitely beneficial for all involved, especially businesses looking to expand and understand not only the local market but also to gather information on regulatory issues such as insurance. We would welcome the opportunity to participate further."

This was a success from everyone's perspective associated with it. Thank you Think Canada."

A Unique Opportunity
"Even in a place as open as Canada, it is a huge challenge to establish a business in another country. You need to know another market, other legal rules and new ways to do business. Think Canada was a unique opportunity to get to know how things work in Canada and also to be in touch with some of the thought leaders of this market."
