At TELUS, small business is a big priority as we understand the challenges that you as small business owners and entrepreneurs face every day. We work hard to help you leverage technology to increase productivity, decrease costs and generate new revenue, allowing you to focus on your core business. We are excited to partner with Women in Biz Network, and look forward to connecting with you to determine how TELUS can help your business.
In support of our philosophy to give where we live, TELUS, our team members and retirees have contributed more than $396 million to charitable and not-for-profit organizations and volunteered more than 6 million hours of service to local communities since 2000. Created in 2005 by Executive Chairman Darren Entwistle, TELUS’ 11 community boards across Canada have led the company’s support of grassroots charities and will have contributed $47 million in support of 3,700 local charities organizations by the end of 2014, enriching the lives of more than two million Canadian children and youth. TELUS was honoured to be named the most outstanding philanthropic corporation globally for 2010 by the Association of Fundraising Professionals, becoming the first Canadian company to receive this prestigious international recognition.
As part of its commitment to helping Canadian small businesses, TELUS supports a number of organizations across Canada, including Communitech, INcubes, TechToronto, the Toronto Region Board of Trade, Startup Canada, Futurpreneur Canada, Women in Biz Network and the Mompreneur Group, among others. In addition, TELUS recently launched the fifth annual Small Business Challenge, in partnership with The Globe and Mail, which helps Canadian small businesses overcome their biggest challenges with more than $150,000 in awards.
