The Aboriginal Business Match (ABM) connects Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal decision makers to create opportunities for business – a large gap that has failed to be addressed in the business world. Revolutionizing the way business is done and hosted all across Canada, this event is produced by a small team of six on Tla’amin Nation, is Aboriginal-owned and is becoming the catalyst for a new wave of innovation across all sectors. Despite their small size, the company has successfully created a national network of over 1,200 decision makers and is the most powerful Aboriginal-driven business development event in Canada with plans to expand to the US in 2017.
Some results from ABM:
– In 2015, 92% of delegates developed key contacts anticipating post-event deals
– 1 in 5 signed at least one deal on the trade show floor.
– 2 in 5 say that their participation in ABM has generated revenue.
