Opportunity Knocks Workshop: Interested in current West Kootenay business opportunities?

Over the past couple of decades successful companies and entrepreneurs have grown out of opportunities in the local metals, materials and Teck supply chain.

One of the most well known is Firebird Technologies who picked up on a niche opportunity and grew it from an incubation center in East Trail, to being purchased by 5N.

Evolving technologies, business innovation and expanding markets are once again creating fertile ground for Kootenay-based entrepreneurs.

A group of local businesses and economic development organizations want to help launch the next wave of Kootenay business success stories through Opportunity Knocks free workshop on Wednesday, May 15 (8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.) at the Greater Trail Community Centre, Muriel Griffiths Room.

To do that, the The Lower Columbia Community Development Team (LCCDT), Black Press, Toxco XL Welding and Fabrication, and KAST are helping area entrepreneurs discover the opportunities available now, how others have done it in the past and how to accelerate the growth of a venture.

For those interested answering opportunities knocks, there will be a one-day workshop to learn about emerging opportunities in metals, materials and the downstream/upstream supply chain that are centred on Teck’s Trail operations.

There is a new economic environment emerging in Greater Trail, where “high tech, green tech,” is the new industrial story.
