We are very excited about this and the new facilitator – Inna Shekhtman, who has over a decade of building up a highly successful, multi-million dollar processing business across Canada. We will also have special guests, such as Brian Saul from Fluid Creative to advise on marketing and branding!

We hope to see you at the workshop! We believe that it will provide great insight and an opportunity to connect with fellow Agri-food companies. The attendees from our last workshop gave us great feedback and more importantly: many of the attendees are now working collaboratively together.

Partners for Growth – A bit of an understanding of our company:

We support growing businesses with business planning, strategy and coaching.

90% of the clients we work with require financing.

We come in to assess, educate and bring in Partners to mitigate risk and support growth. Our final stage is to build out packages for finance and negotiate on their behalf with our 30+ lenders we work with, both traditional and non-traditional.

We are just coming off of the 2 1/2 year mark for our firm. We have had the opportunity to work with 40+ businesses and have a 100% success rate in obtaining finance for our clients.

We are currently working with around 15 incredibly passionate and inspiring entrepreneurs throughout BC. The majority of these are in the Agri-Food/Beverage/Farming sector. We are vetted consultants with the Ministry of Agriculture as part of the Growing Forward 2 program. All the Agri-Food/Beverage/Farming clients that have worked with us (or currently working with us) have all qualified to receive the Growing Forward 2 grant to help pay for our consulting fees.

We are passionate about educating and empowering our clients for strategic growth. We love working with our incredible Partners – lending, legal, accounting, marketing, etc. We believe firmly Partnering is the only way to grow! That’s why we are called Partners for Growth.
