Businesses happy in Airdrie
Airdrie Economic Development recently completed the 2018 Business Satisfaction Survey and was told that 86 per cent of respondents are happy doing business in Airdrie. Quality of life, location, community growth and access to customer bases were listed as the top benefits of doing business here.
Airdrie’s SMARTstart program offers tools, training, mentorship and business planning to a new group of entrepreneurs each year. One of the biggest benefits of SMARTstart is the mentorship – participants are matched with a local business volunteer.
