Canada invests in Indigenous women entrepreneurs at Queen’s

September 4, 2019

Queen’s University has received $3.27M to deliver a suite of programming for women in technology and Indigenous women entrepreneurs. The funding comes from the federally supported Women Entrepreneurship Strategy (WES) Ecosystem Fund, which invests in programming and research at several institutions and organizations to support women entrepreneurs. The suite of programming at Queen’s will be delivered through partnerships with several local companies, including Okwaho Equal Source, an agency focused on providing Indigenous entrepreneurs with access to relevant programming. OPI and Okwaho will work together to provide various programs and services, including the development and delivery of a culturally appropriate and meaningful acceleration program.
