At Futurpreneur we believe in building trust to best support Indigenous Young Entrepreneurs. We help Indigenous entrepreneurs aged 18-39 launch or buy their own business. With up to $60,000* in financing, an expert mentor for up to two years, and access to resources, we’re here to help young entrepreneurs bring their business plan to life.
Futurpreneur recently hired two new Indigenous Business Development Managers and we’re pleased to introduce them to you here.
Building relationships and trust are key for Sammy when it comes to supporting Indigenous entrepreneurs, as well as creating synergies with other service providers. She believes we can all work together to support Indigenous entrepreneurs in following their goals and passions toward the launch of their dream businesses.
Sammy Zoerb is the Business Development Manager, Indigenous Young Entrepreneurs, with Futurpreneur Canada for the provinces of Alberta and British Columbia. Originally from Thunderchild, Saskatchewan, she has lived in Edmonton for the past 20 years.
Sammy holds a diploma in Business Administration and started her career in Indigenous economic development straight after she graduated. She soon discovered her passion was to become a resource for Indigenous economic prosperity and she has focused on supporting Indigenous entrepreneurship for the past four years. Being a part of Futurpreneur’s new Indigenous team with a focused strategy that supports young Indigenous entrepreneurs is all part of her journey. Sammy believes it is critical for Indigenous people to become self-sustainable and she is honoured to be a part of this exciting time where Indigenous entrepreneurs are following their dreams and contributing to the economic growth of this country.
