Entrepreneurs Unplugged is powered by Accelerate Okanagan in partnership with Grant Thornton. We love this event because it’s incredible way to learn from experienced entrepreneurs in our community as well as an excellent opportunity to network with members of our local entrepreneurial ecosystem. On September 21st our very own Executive in Residence, Fraser Campbell took to the stage to talk about his entrepreneurial journey, the lessons he’s learned along the way, and why he’s learned to put the FUN in finance.
