If you’re a part of the PEI business community, we can help you expand your networks and tap into new potential markets
Immigrant entrepreneurs are starting to make up a significant part of the business community in PEI. At the 2013 Biz 2 Biz Expo, newcomer businesses displaying their goods and services made up 10 per cent of the space at the trade show. And the 2013 Annual President Excellence Awards Gala Dinner (produced by the Greater Charlottetown Area Chamber of Commerce) saw its first newcomer business nominated for the Emerging Business of the Year Award.
These entrepreneurs bring a diverse range of skills to PEI and can help your business expand its networks. Businesses that specialize in international trade see an immediate benefit to connecting with the right immigrant entrepreneur who can link previously established business networks in his or her home country to those right here in Prince Edward Island.
Even if your business doesn’t deal with international trade, it can still benefit from expanding its connections. Perhaps you need to research various cultural practices related to international business—you can save time and money by asking one of our Program Officers or consulting our research library. Or, perhaps your business is ready to expand, you’re looking to hire more staff, attract investment, and you want to grow your business connections. We can host individual or group introduction sessions, allowing you to connect with immigrant entrepreneurs.
