Craft Alliance Atlantic Association has developed the Activator HUB development program to deliver support to craftspeople that have been under-served in government-funded business development initiatives in the past, including Indigenous people, racialized people, people identifying as 2SLGBTQIA+ and people with disabilities.
The Business Mentoring Sessions will be a business development focused program and provide both group and one-on-one sessions with expert business leaders and mentors through virtual webinars, workshops, and small assignments throughout the series to help cement new skills and practices. This is a peer-to-peer group, collaborative process, led by a business mentor.
This program will be of interest to craft producers or small-scale production-oriented manufacturers, who want to move their business to the next level, create a focused business plan and develop new opportunities that focus on expanding markets and increasing sales.
Participants must have already developed and created craft products with the intention of developing a small-scale production business from these products. Participants must reside in Atlantic Canada and all products must be produced in the region. Self-identifying as one or more of the equity groups mentioned in the questionnaire is a requirement for participants - please contact us if you have any concerns or questions about this requirement.
Thank you for taking this time to complete our survey; it provides invaluable and necessary data to make our upcoming Mentorship Sessions the best they can be. Please answer these questions to the best of your ability.
Responses may be compiled to use as statistics for reporting and to inform future funding initiatives. Information and comments provided will be kept confidential and for internal uses only.
The survey is very short and should only take approx. 10 mins. to complete.
