You may have heard about Confetti Sweets working with and Arlene Dickinson from Dragon's Den. Let us explain.
We are EXTREMELY fortunate to have the opportunity to be a part of Arlene Dickinson's District Ventures Accelerator. Over 1000 small businesses and entrepreneurs across Canada applied to this 6-month program and we were 1 of the 10 chosen!!
Amongst our group, there are companies from all across Canada. We have been travelling to Calgary a few times per month for the program taking advantage of incredible business mentorship and meeting with experts in our field to aid in smart expansion and business development. At the end of the 6 months, we do a pitch to a room of investors. :0
I mean, we don't get to hang out with Arlene on the regular yet...but we have certainly got to rub shoulders a couple times. ;)
What does all this mean? It means we are working diligently to grow our business and we are so grateful for this opportunity -- it's a big step toward our goal of world cookie domination.
