FHQ Developments Joins Forces with Women Entrepreneurs of Saskatchewan (WESK) to Support Indigenous Women’s Entrepreneurship

At FHQ Developments, we believe in fostering partnerships that lead to meaningful change and we’re excited to commemorate a pivotal moment in our journey. On October 19, 2020, we embarked on a transformative path by joining hands with Women Entrepreneurs of Saskatchewan (WESK) through a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).  

Together with WESK, we aim to create an environment where Indigenous women can thrive as entrepreneurs. This partnership reflects our unwavering commitment to supporting Indigenous businesses, enhancing Indigenous women’s capacity, and empowering Indigenous women in their entrepreneurial journeys.  

Through strategic collaboration and feedback from Indigenous women entrepreneurs, WESK introduced the Matchstick program, a beacon of support for Indigenous women in their entrepreneurial endeavours. Over 300 Indigenous women entrepreneurs received invaluable assistance, including business planning, mentoring, business advising, and financing. 

One of the key objectives of our partnership is to provide Indigenous women with the tools, resources, and mentorship they need to succeed in the business world. This includes access to training programs, networking opportunities, and business development support. Through these initiatives, we aim to enhance Indigenous women’s capacity to start and grow their own businesses. 

We invite you to explore additional Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) partnership associations that our company is actively engaged in. Information can be found on our dedicated page here. 

At FHQ Developments, we believe that real progress is achieved through collaboration and commitment. Our partnership with WESK exemplifies this belief as we work together to create a brighter and more inclusive future. Together, we can make a difference, recognizing and enhancing Indigenous women’s entrepreneurship, supporting Indigenous businesses, and empowering Indigenous women to reach their full potential.
