News Release: Enactus Dalhousie and Business Ideas

news release: The program will involve mentoring from local, national and international entrepreneurs, and one-on-one training from business-oriented navigators, according to The Chronicle Herald. Our goal is to help immigrant women in our local community take their business ideas from paper to pitch to reality, Kyla Doornbos, the volunteer co-ordinator for the Newcomer Network through Enactus Dalhousie, said in a news release. The showcase is a series of workshops designed to help build, develop and feature immigrant women and their ideas from the Halifax business community, and ends with a pitch competition. We want to help them get their foot in the door and efficiently develop their businesses wherever they need the assistance. We want to help translate their skills into jobs that help them participate in the community around them, she said. Emily Miller, the curator of the Global Shapers Halifax Hub, said in the release that immigrant women often lack meaningful work experiences outside the home. ( As reported in the news.
