Townfolio was started as a $500 tech startup and grew across Canada in one year. With a limited budget, organizations have to be creative in finding ways to promote their services, products, and thought leadership. Municipalities are no exception. Thankfully, technology has made it extremely affordable or even at no cost to get the word out.

For tech founders, software is the norm, but from talking to hundreds of economic developers, Townfolio realized that there are budgetary pain points and unavailable technical skills that need to be overcome to market their municipalities effectively.

Join Townfolio for this webinar to learn about no and low-cost tools available to communities of all sizes.
