The most recent tale of success comes from the Transportation sector, with a look at the work and planning required to get Silvery Grizzly Transportation on the road.
The idea of a car service, to offer luxury transportation in the Prince Rupert area and around the Northwest was put together by Michelle Bryant and her husband Trenton Gravelle, launching the service last year offering something different for both visitors and residents of the region.
Their story is profiled in the most recent entry to the ThriveNorth Blog, and outlines the various steps along the way that the couple needed to navigate to bring their plan together.
You can learn more about what Silver Grizzly Transportation has to offer from this entry to the Love Prince Rupert business portal.
To get from idea to rolling stock, the pair made use of the assistance of the NRT And First Citizens Fund through Tricorp, as well as the expertise from those hosting the Futurpreneur Canada program on the North Coast.
The Futurpreneur program provides the mentorship and experience of a number of members of the business community in the Northwest, helping guide would be entrepreneurs through the range of challenges that sometimes leave the ambitious to abandon their projects before they've had a chance to see them develop.
The Thrive North Business Challenge is currently accepting pitches for this years Business competition, where young people ages 18-39 can showcase their business ideas and receive the support required to turn them into a reality.
The deadline to apply for this years Challenge is February 29th.
In the Northwest, the Thrive North Challenge is a partnership between Futurpreneur Canada and BG Canada.
