Celebrating success in the Black Business Community

On June 23,  we were back showcasing business owners at the Black Business Initiative's 20th Anniversary and Summit with dignitaries and sponsors across our province. Our keynote Valerie Jarrett, former advisor to President Obama was phenomenal. 
We celebrated the best of our community's success with various Awards, such as the Hector Jacques Award of Business Excellence given to the Bin Doctors, the Entrepreneur of the Year Award and much more. I'm so proud to be a part of the organization that gave me a start in my business and many others over the years. Imagine our Top Four performing Black-owned businesses amassed over 20 years combined sales equaling over $1 Billion ( Danta Specialty Products, A.C. Dispensing Equipment Inc, SureShot Solutions, The Bin Doctors and BioMedica Diagnostics), and employing hundreds. these companies are internationally known around the world.
 This is a significant contribution to our economy and the economic sustainability of our province.
We recognized our internationally known female business owners like Eleanor Beaton, Cassandra and Cynthia Dorrington. Also, our young achievers such as Ross Simmonds and Mo Handahu featured in Essence Magazine.
Congratulations to all at Black Business Initiative, the only one of its kind in Canada. We also appreciate the vision and inspiration to "Expand our Reach."
