Building a business is heavy work, and the Business Sherpa can ease that journey, with free coaching, targeted resources, and interactive progress-tracking tools designed to take Basin manufacturing or technology businesses to the summit of success.
Located at www.businessherpa.ca, the Business Sherpa is a new, online pool of resources serving innovation, technology-centric and manufacturing entrepreneurs in the Columbia Basin. While there are many websites designed to help entrepreneurs, locating, navigating and selecting what is useful from what is not, is a monumental task.
The Business Sherpa aims to do much of that heavy lifting for users, and provides additional value with support from real experienced people at the Kootenay Association for Science & Technology (KAST) and the Kootenay Rockies Innovation Council (KRIC).
“KAST and KRIC are striving for growth in the knowledge sector in the Columbia Basin region,” said Kelvin Saldern, executive director of the Kootenay Association for Science & Technology.
“Launching and growing a manufacturing and technology business is a true challenge, with all the associated peaks and valleys—the Business Sherpa is here to help our entrepreneurs conquer those obstacles and achieve their business goals.”
