The Eden U program will be in several cities this winter.

Eden, an on-demand and subscription-based snow removal and lawn care maintenance app based in Toronto, held its first Eden U program in early November. The program is designed to help contractors navigate growing their businesses, according to an article published on betakit.com.

Eden U partnered with equipment manufacturer Stihl Canada and Intuit Quickbooks to host 50 companies at the two-day event held at The Royal Canadian Legion.

CEO Ben Zlotnick says, “This is an innovative method of bringing contractors together, connected through Eden, to share industry best practices.”

The program was led by Scott Bryk, past president of Grounds Guys Canada and current COO of Eden. The topics covered focused on recruiting, best social media practices and a workshop hosted by Stihl on new products.

The company has upcoming Eden U training events in Ottawa, Ontario, Chicago, Minneapolis, Detroit, Boston and Philadelphia.
