The 4th annual Networking in Motion – Business Crawl and Reception was a huge success! As part of small business week, ISANS partnered with the Spring Garden Area Business Association (SPABA) and the Halifax Central Library, to hold the business crawl. Under beautiful sunny skies, 80 participants took part in 2 tours of 4 downtown immigrant owned businesses:
- Humani-T Café
- Rousseau Chocolatier
A reception followed at the Central Library with over 130 attending the event. Sponsors for the reception where BDC and SRABA.
Networking in Motion is about highlighting the contribution that immigrant businesses are making to the Nova Scotia economy and providing opportunity for the businesses, business start-up clients and those attending to build their own networks and develop partnerships.
Some comments from participants:
- ‘This event was great to learn about businesses that I would have no exposure to otherwise, along with the challenges they faced in starting their business. Very Interesting event!’
- Excellent event! Loved the walking to businesses. Fresh air and sunshine!
- ‘It’s a good idea of ISANS to try and connect us with a new person and to give us opportunity to know some more about new businesses in Halifax’
- ‘It was a great event as it is close to the questions or the small business to which I look as my future…’
