While all entrepreneurs face challenges, Business Link acknowledges that immigrants face additional barriers to starting and running a business. That’s why we offer specialized support to aspiring and established immigrant entrepreneurs across Alberta.
One-on-one coaching supports. One-on-one coaching and supports are delivered by Business Link staff to immigrant entrepreneurs across Alberta in person whenever possible as well as over the telephone and by email.
Training and workshops. Our training and workshops target newcomers and immigrants across Alberta to help them understand Canadian business practices and improve their business skills. These are delivered through a variety of mediums (live, webinar, online) to reach as many entrepreneurs as possible.
Network referral building. We are building a referral network across Alberta to focus on pairing immigrant entrepreneurs with the most suitable support wherever they are in Alberta.
Capacity building. Delivery of capacity building training to business and service providers across rural Alberta will allow them to reach and serve immigrant entrepreneurs within their region more successfully.
