Danielle Doiron, General Manager, Marketing, at Canada Post, said, “As part of our commitment to investing in the success of small business and strengthening communities across Canada, including underserved northern and Indigenous communities, we are proud to once again sponsor Pow Wow Pitch. We are honoured to enable Indigenous entrepreneurs across the country and help them start and grow their businesses.”
In addition to supporting Pow Wow Pitch as a Silver-Level Sponsor and engaging its employees as mentors, trusted advisors, and judges for virtual pitch contests and on the ground at pow wows across Canada, Canada Post will be available to answer questions related to shipping, e-commerce, logistics and marketing as part of the Pow Wow Pitch Ask Me Anything series.
Through Pow Wow Pitch, Indigenous vendors, artists and entrepreneurs from Canada and the United States can pitch their businesses and business ideas virtually and live at pow wows and Indigenous festivals for their chance to join the Pow Wow Pitch Accelerator program and win more than $200,000 in cash prizes.
“With Canada Post’s support, we are launching education tools to help Indigenous makers, creators, artists and entrepreneurs across Turtle Island build and optimize their shipping and logistics processes to grow.”
