The Entrepreneurship Committee at IWOO has the important role of increasing the number of successful Iranian-Canadian women. We look to help entrepreneurs by hosting workshops related to important topics in business. There are Iranian-Canadian newcomers with valuable experiences in business that would like to run their own business in Ontario. Also, there are many successful entrepreneurs who would like to develop their businesses and grow. IWOO can be a strong bridge between them and those who are looking for jobs.
