Aboriginal entrepreneurs in NB complete program, pitch ideas

May 4, 2016

New Brunswick’s Joint Economic Development Initiative (JEDI) is celebrating the graduation of the first cohort to complete the Aboriginal Business Accelerator Program. The initiative, reportedly the first of its kind in Atlantic Canada, was developed by JEDI as part of the New Brunswick Aboriginal Shipbuilding Engagement Strategy. Aboriginal entrepreneurs learned how to develop their business and get it to market by learning about subjects such as human resources, project and financial management, research, and securing capital. Graduates will participate in an investment competition and pitch their business ideas to a panel of investors.
