BCB Launches Entrepreneurial Protégé/Vanguard Program 

To increase business development in the region, Business Cape Breton continues to deliver services that assist new and existing businesses with business plan development and advisory services.  A new addition to the business development program will be the introduction of an Entrepreneur Protégé/Vanguard Pilot Program. 


The BCB Entrepreneurial Vanguard Committee will provide guidance, coaching, and training along with providing information on identifying new investment opportunities to BCB clients wishing to start or expand a business.  The Entrepreneur Protégé would have the opportunity to participate in one-on-one sessions with Q & A as well as opportunities for one-on-one meetings with successful and specific business sector volunteer vanguards. Parker Rudderham, Chair of Business Cape Breton says, “This is yet another tangible value we can offer aspiring entrepreneurs.”


The members of the Entrepreneur Vanguard Committee are able to provide advice, direction and networking contact possibilities to the new or existing business owners in the following areas:  marketing and public relations, financing, operations, structure, management, new investment and pitching ideas. The program commenced last week with BCB clients.
