The Aboriginal Women’s Business Entrepreneurship Network (AWBEN) is seeking women entrepreneurs to serve as mentors to Métis, Status and non-Status women interested in starting their own business.

The Aboriginal Women’s Business Entrepreneurship Network (AWBEN) is seeking women entrepreneurs to serve as mentors to Métis, Status and non-Status women interested in starting their own business.

Mentors will be selected from six regions across Canada.

The objectives of AWBEN are to: 

•    provide a safe, supportive, collaborative, empowering and culturally supportive environment that addresses the challenges of female Aboriginal entrepreneurs and those that aspire to become entrepreneurs;

•    enhance, develop and accelerate growth for current and aspiring female entrepreneurs in a sustainable way through programs and resources; and

•    promote community leadership through volunteerism as a reflection of respect and reciprocity.

Mentors from different regions across Canada will offer guidance and support by sharing their experience and knowledge, act as a sounding board, help find appropriate resources, build confidence and self-worth in women and help mentees focus on developing or growing their businesses.

Work will be completed from December 2016 to March 2017.
