Business Services to Support Economic Growth Through the Settlement and Retention of Newcomers
A Cultural Mosaic of Entrepreneurship!
Since 2009 the Fredericton Chamber of Commerce has been dedicated to helping business immigrant entrepreneurs succeed in their new businesses and ventures. We aim to connect newcomers with the community and provide them with the resources needed to get their business started.
With programs aimed specifically at newcomers, the Fredericton Chamber of Commerce is invested in fostering the growth of our community.
The Hive Incubator provides guidance and support services to help entrepreneurs start and grow their businesses in a comfortable and relaxed business setting located in the heart of the business development ecosystem in Fredericton.
The Hive Incubator is pleased to extend its business expertise to newcomers by providing them with an office from which to run their business. This allows our newcomer investors the opportunity to be immersed on a daily basis with business development, networking and mentoring.
The Business Immigrant Mentorship Program (BIMP) allows immigrant entrepreneurs to learn from successful and experienced members of the Fredericton Chamber of Commerce and our entire business community. Mentors guide immigrant entrepreneurs through a six month process of developing a network and establishing a business venture. The mentees are included in a very comprehensive training curriculum, “Doing Business in New Brunswick” which guides them through the often convoluted maze of understanding new laws and becoming familiar with regulatory bodies they must know in order to do business in their new country.
The Fredericton Immigrant Business Services Programs BIMP and HIVE work in close collaboration with the Fredericton Chamber of Commerce, the Province of New Brunswick, City of Fredericton, Ignite Fredericton, Planet Hatch, the University of New Brunswick and all major economic development partners within our region. Our services are in place to ensure our newcomers have all the tools they need to settle and become successful in business in their new country.
Succession Connect is an innovative new pilot created by the Fredericton Chamber of Commerce as its third immigrant business services program for the Greater Fredericton Region. Located adjacent to Planet Hatch in Knowledge Park, Succession Connect is housed within the chamber’s Hive Incubator.
The goal of Succession Connect is to support and retain more New Canadian investors in New Brunswick by providing a convenient and confidential avenue for current business owners to sell their companies. We are pleased to be part of culturally diversifying the province’s population while improving our demographics and ensuring the continuation of New Brunswick-based businesses.
