Barrie is a Connected Community


Barrie’s startup community harnesses the power of our connected partners to offer one degree of separation to resources needed to grow a venture.


The City of Barrie, Georgian College and many other partners in the community are focused on supporting entrepreneurs start, launch and grow their businesses. Barrie Entrepreneurs Connect was created as a showcase for Barrie’s entrepreneurship news, events and happenings all in one place.

In 2017, the site was relaunched with the integration of The Networking Effect platform. The Networking Effect is an all in one tool that lets you build, increase and manage your network all through the BEC website.

The site now gives members the ability to easily connect with the right people based on specific business needs and to create visibility of their own to others.

We here at Barrie Entrepreneurs Connect would love to hear your thoughts regarding entrepreneurship in and around the Barrie area.
