The Kootenay Aboriginal Business Development Agency (KABDA) is keeping its momentum going by launching into a Kootenay Aboriginal Business Showcase on March 22 and 23 in the Ktunaxa Nation Government Building in Cranbrook.
Aboriginal entrepreneurs and artists will be front and centre at the showcase, which aims to help First Nations from across the Kootenay region to come together in one location to showcase their wares, talent, products and services. That will take place amidst two fun-filled days scheduled with aboriginal entertainment, business demonstrations, and a mystery guest speaker.
“Since I began working with KABDA, I am both surprised and pleased to see so many aboriginal businesses in the Kootenay region.” said Janice Alpine, the agency’s business coach and events coordinator.
Those numbers continue to grow, as aboriginal operators are gaining recognition as significant contributors to the regional economy.
The event is open to the general public, and business operators and entrepreneurs can go to www.kabda.org to download the registration form. Contact Janice Alpine 250 489 0595 for more information on registration, events and talent.
The event is sponsored by BC Hydro, Teck Coal, and Columbia Power.
