MAPLE Business Council has reached its five-year milestone. The team that launched the social network, Canadians in Orange County, considered the potential of a business network focused on cross-border investment and trade at the suggestion of the Consulate General of Canada in Los Angeles.

“It has been an incredible journey thanks to the countless contributions of so many people across Canada and Southern California,” said MAPLE co-founder Robert Kelle. “In particular we thank former Deputy Consul General Rashma Agarwal for her vision and to everyone at the Consulate past and present for their continued support.”

After 75 events from Vancouver to Montréal and across Southern California, multiple delegations to Canada, more than 100 newsletters and videos, and nearly 10K tweets, MAPLE Business Council continues to grow its reach. The organization is expanding its partnerships with members such as Knobbe Martens, the Toronto Stock Exchange & TSX Venture Exchange as part of the TMX Group, and xahive

“It is truly a privilege to work on behalf of this collective cross-border community of executives, organizations, institutions, and communities to underline the many ways the economies of Canada and Southern California intersect through investment, trade, and entrepreneurship,” said MAPLE co-founder Stephen Armstrong.

MAPLE Business Council is now launching a new organization, MAPLE Business Advisors, with the mission to help businesses in Canada and America to grow with the support of the new cross-border advisory services firm.
