The Saskatchewan Advisory Committee held its second meeting on November 15, 2019. Presentations from two technology focused incubators, Co.Labs and Cultivator, provided key insights into the structure and supports available for business GROWTH along the spectrum.
The sub-committee tasked with the priority of access to capital, networks/mentors presented several recommendations.
The Committee’s deliberations included the challenges of balancing family responsibilities and business growth; knowledge and skills in relation to financial management; linkage and connections to established entrepreneurs and recruiting advisors and mentors. There were recommendations for the development of comprehensive supports for growth/scaling up and collaborations with key stakeholders and partners to augment supports and training.
The recommendations of this sub-committee will be captured in a Final Report to be released in June 2020.
The next meeting of the Committee is scheduled for January 2020 and will focus on Influencing Policy.
