Focal Ottawa is a student-led initiative dedicated to promoting and supporting local Ottawa businesses. By now we all know too well how COVID-19 has adversely impacted small businesses throughout the Ottawa community. While Ottawans across the city are working diligently to support the businesses they love most, a group of students took it upon themselves to create awareness about local businesses and amplify their message using web traffic. Steve Georgopoulos sits down with Shavonne Hasfal-Mcintosh to explain how the initiative was born, and discuss the role that leadership, education, and inspiration play in bringing small businesses back into focus.
