Tribe Network has opened applications and nominations for its Black Entrepreneurship Program, which provides support for Black entrepreneurs and business owners in Atlantic Canada.

Founded in 2021 by CEO Alfred Burgesson, Tribe Network, has developed a platform that allows entrepreneurs from BIPOC – Black, Indigenous and People of Colour – communities to accelerate their growth by linking with appropriate support organizations.

The organization is now asking Black entrepreneurs to apply for the Black Entrepreneurship Program, or for anyone to nominate a Black founder who they think could benefit from the program. The program, which is free, is open to people with established businesses or those with an entrepreneurial ambition.

Black entrepreneurs who register can win up to $10,000.00 in prize money and up to $30,000 in in-kind services.

As well as Burgesson, the Tribe Network team includes serial entrepreneur Sally Ng, who joined as CEO a few weeks ago, and long-time mentor Permjot Valia as an advisor.

You can register for the Black Entrepreneurship Program here or nominate someone here. Nominations and applications close March 23.
