The South Island Prosperity Project partnered with the Songhees Innovation Centre to launch IndigenousConnect— a monthly, face-to-face forum with a goal to engage more First Nations communities in economic development and entrepreneurial endeavours. The monthly forums are open to all First Nation communities throughout the South Island region, as well as to all Indigenous people on or off reserve.

The objectives of the forum are to build our collective capacity for Indigenous prosperity—whether this means building entrepreneurial or management skills, or the administrative capacity to start Band-owned businesses or joint ventures.
