Shake On It!

 Shake On It! logo

Two economic development powerhouses, one hyper-productive business event: Shake On It! is a powerful resource to build economic development capacity and get real deals done all in one action-packed week. 

The Council for the Advancement of Native Development Officers (CANDO) and the Aboriginal Business Match (ABM) have joined forces to  provide a platform where decision makers can take their business development to the next level — from that first handshake at CANDO's networking and capacity training opportunities to that last handshake when closing a business deal on the ABM tradeshow floor. 

Co-hosted by Saint Mary's First Nation and the Joint Economic Development Initiative (JEDI), this event will take place on Walastoqey Territory in Fredericton, NB. Prior to attending, delegates create up to 31 pre-schedule appointments to identify potential joint-venture or partnership opportunities. Then hone your skills and further your career with breakthrough workshops, engaging plenaries and panel discussions, before bringing that expertise for focused and business-ready conversations at your appointments.
