Topic: Digitize now: Transform your Business
The rapid pace of technological change is one of the most significant economic events of this century. To understand how Canadian businesses are adapting to these changes and how they compare with their American competitors, the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) surveyed 2,000 Canadian and 600 American decision-makers and owners of small and mid-sized businesses. We found that businesses need to embrace new technologies or risk falling behind. Learn what you can do to effectively transform your business and discover how BDC’s new Digital maturity assessment too can help you get started.
