Making Business Matches

by Toolbox Staff

Many people looking for new opportunities and business partners checked out the Aboriginal Business Match ­Alberta event, which took place in September at the River Cree Resort and Casino in Enoch, Alberta.

According to the 2006 census, 37,000 First Nations, Metis and Inuit People in Canada had their own businesses, Up 85% from 1996

This event, hosted by the Sunchild First Nation, provided both aboriginal and non-aboriginal companies the chance to connect and create business opportunities through the development of joint ventures and partnerships. These included things like training, employment and investment.

ABM also offered companies unparalleled access to community decision makers, employment and training co-ordinators, economic development officers and First Nations suppliers and customers.

According to organizers, 92 per cent of delegates who attended the 2015 event said they developed key contacts and were anticipating post-event deals. About 20 per cent signed at least one deal on the trade show floor.
