On Thusday November 9 the Mind to Market business expo was held at the St.Eugene Mission.
The lastet iteration of the Kimberley Business Expo was expanded this year to a new format as Mind to Market Kootenay Entreprenuer Showcase. The event targeted entrepreneurs interested in starting a company or those seeking to improve their current business. More than 30 business development support agencies and and business-to-business companies were there for attendees to make connections and seek advice.
The Kimberley Business Expo originated from a 2014 survey of businesses by the CIty of Kimberley that identified a poor awareness of the business support services available in the area. It has become a on-stop-shop for those seeking advice and information. The new regional format has combined the resources of Kimberley and Cranbrook under the leadership of the Kimberley Chamber.
