Aboriginal business conference coming to Fort St. John

A conference designed to connect Aboriginal entrepreneurs and communities with private sector opportunities is hitting Fort St. John Sept. 21 to 23 at the curling club.

Aboriginal Business Match (ABM) offers a chance for Aboriginal employment and training coordinators to connect with companies offering employment opportunities and business partnerships.

Delegates who pre-register can create profiles that will be fully searchable on the ABM website, and are used to set up one-on-one prescheduled appointments for when the event comes to town.

ABM claims their model “levels the playing field to allow business connections to be made,” according to a release. “Every appointment represents a potential business opportunity.”

Delegates can set up as many as 31 pre-qualified appointments that are 20 minutes in length over the course of the conference. These meetings will help decide whether or not a business match is possible.

Preference is given to companies that provide business opportunities extending beyond a customer/supplier relationship, including training, employment and partnerships.
