“I learned how important it is to really look at your quarterly reports. It was my mentor Dave who taught me different ways to look at them and make changes to how I do business. I also learned about the power of sharing my story. All of this is a part of branding.”

– Joella Hogan, Founder and Owner, The Yukon Soaps Company Participant, Catalyste+-Entreprenorth Mentorship Program

Currently, our projects in the North are supported and funded by CanNor, Government of Nunavut, Government of Northwest Territories, and Entreprenorth.
