Welcome to eQuo!
We're on a mission to support small businesses and the Founders who are the backbone of our economy. Further, we are dedicated to ALL entrepreneurs, regardless of sex, age, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or disability.
Under eQuo's #GoSmallCanada umbrella, we are continuing to build the first inclusive platform to help small businesses find the support, funding, investors, capital, and customers that they need to grow.
We recently launched a community Slack channel and are almost ready to launch both the eQuo small business directory and small business gift guide.
Small businesses have been the backbone of our communities forever. Isn’t it time to share the love and become the cheerleaders and advocates they need right now.
#GoSmallCanada is a movement we've created to support small businesses where it will help them the most; at the cash register.
We’re challenging Canadians to come together and support small businesses across the Country by leveraging our business directory and gift guide to find the products and/or services they want and then sharing your purchase on social media to spread the word to your network . Together, let’s show how BIG small businesses can become when they have a little help.
When we band together and choose to buy from our favourite small businesses, even the smallest purchases add up. Search eQuo’s GoSmall business directory for businesses, products, or services and find perfect gift for the holidays within our small gift guide.
For anyone looking to support specific communities, you can also search businesses by founder composition. For instance, find businesses that are LGBTQ+ led, black led, Indigenous led, Latino led, women led, immigrant led, POC led, or persons with disabilities led.
Your purchases can become even more powerful when you share those #hiddengems for other consumers to discover on social media.
#Find businesses, products and services through our #GoSmallCanada business directory and/or our #GoSmallCanada Gift Guide.
#Shop online or in-person.
#Share your experience on social media to spread the word.
#Find. #Shop. #Share.
