Women in Business New Brunswick (WBNB) has been in existence for more than a decade. It is an organisation that provides services to women in business and women entrepreneurs thanks to the financial support of the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA). Under the auspices of the New Brunswick Association of Community Business Development Corporations (CBDCs), the WBNB can rely on a strong and well-established network of economic leaders dedicated to small and medium-sized enterprises across New Brunswick.
WBNB underwent a restructuring of its organisation in fall 2018 and is currently going through a strategic planning and a work plan exercise. “We are looking forward to having new activities and a schedule to propose to female entrepreneurs, we are planning to launch the organisation and all of its new components in a near future. We are currently developing a new website, new promotional items with a completely new branding. Stay tuned as WBNB will also reveal the members of its Advisory Committee,” said Katherine Lanteigne, Director of WBNB.
WBNB added value lies on an experienced team of Development Officers who provide bilingual support to all female entrepreneurs in both rural and urban areas. Three targeted top priorities of intervention that meet the current needs of women entrepreneurs are: (1) Start-up; (2) Growth and Expansion; and (3) Export and International Trade. Our Development Officers all have a provincial role and can help women from anywhere in the province, from Miscou to St. Stephen.
