Business Accelerator gathers local entrepreneurs

Business Accelerator gathers local entrepreneurs

Just a few spots remain for this weekend’s Business Accelerator forum.

Three days of workshops and panels are planned for budding PIB entrepreneurs May 31 – June 2. The agenda includes developing business ideas, learning to pitch concepts and preparing to pitch ideas (big and small) to local business leaders who have a depth background in starting successful businesses.

The event, to be held at the Penticton Indian Band Hall is in partnership with the Penticton Chamber of Commerce and is open to all PIB Members.

“There is a wealth of talented entrepreneurs within the PIB membership.” said Jonathan Baynes, CEO of K’ul Group. “This weekend will be a great opportunity to develop and move forward with their ideas while getting in front of business peers who can provide an abundance of feedback and support.”

There is a $1500 prize for first place on the Pitch Competition, which is modeled after the popular CBC show Dragon’s Den, where entrepreneurs pitch their business concept to a panel of successful business people.

The winner will also receive five hours of business coaching from KISS Business Strategies. The runner up will receive a coaching package (five sessions) from Your Natural Edge.

“The Chamber is excited to be partnering with K’ul Group in a Business Accelerator Weekend,” said Nicole Clark, President of the Penticton and Wine Country Chamber of Commerce.

“It is important to us that we build relationships and partnerships with PIB, as we do with other members of our business community.”
