Everyone is invited to the event at the Prestige Rocky Mountain Resort

ʔa·kisk̓aqǂiʔit, ʔamakʔis Ktunaxa (Cranbrook, B.C.): Everyone is invited to attend the Ktunaxa Business Showcase, coming up at the end of February. It will take place in Cranbrook at the Prestige Rocky Mountain Resort between 1 and 4 pm, and feature 36 Ktunaxa businesses, entrepreneurs and artisans.

“We’re excited about this year’s showcase,” said Jason Andrew, Director of the Economic and Investment Sector at Ktunaxa Nation Council (KNC). “The last one was in 2022, and we heard some positive feedback. This year, even more Ktunaxa businesses and entrepreneurs will be there to network and market what they do.”

Economic and Investment Sector staff have been busy helping Ktunaxa businesses update their marketing and table displays. They’ve worked with local print shops to update business cards and brochures, and have even developed branded tablecloths and banners.

Even more important though, is the opportunity to network.

“This showcase is unique,” Andrew said. “Our clients are Ktunaxa business owners, artists and entrepreneurs and communities. This is a way to present their work to the public.”

The Economic and Investment Sector operates the Ktunaxa Business Development Office. They work closely with individual Ktunaxanin̓tik clients who can access microloans, small-business development grants, business coaching, and marketing items like websites.

“Our business development office is here to support Ktunaxa businesses to elevate their success,” Andrew said.

The Ktunaxa Business Showcase takes place on February 29, 2024.

Location is the Prestige Rocky Mountain Resort in Cranbrook, and time is 1 pm to 4 pm. Everyone is welcome.
