On July 29-31, 2022, AHC collaborated with Explore Edmonton to bring 19 entrepreneurs to the K-Days Urban Market at the Expo Centre. Some of the many small businesses the Business Supports program has supported over the years were exhibitors at the three-day event, which took place from noon-10 pm each day.
19 new immigrant entrepreneurs showcased their various products and services, including cultural clothing, artisan crafts, cultural food, handmade jewelry and more!
Through this collaboration, we aimed to:
- To promote the economic prosperity of immigrants and Albertans: Through a 19 booth showcase, guests will have the opportunity to support various small businesses, with business owners having lived in Canada less than five years.
- To showcase and acknowledge our new entrepreneurs’ achievements: Participants have eagerly and persistently dedicated the last 14+ weeks to taking their business ideas to fruition through the guidance of well-known and experienced facilitators, business consultants, and mentors. This event will celebrate the entrepreneur’s achievements and give them the opportunity to showcase their creativity, products/services to the public.
This is the second year AHC’s Business Supports program has collaborated with Explore Edmonton to bring its entrepreneurs as K-Day exhibitors, the first in 2019, with the aim to participate annually.
