RRC Polytech launches Mittohnee Pogo’ohtah acceleration and incubation initiative

Red River College Polytechnic has launched an Indigenous entrepreneurship acceleration and incubation initiative called Mittohnee Pogo’ohtah, which is Cree for “this is where you do it correctly.” This program will connect Indigenous graduates of the Social Innovation and Community Development program with the resources and expertise they need to start their own businesses. Established Indigenous entrepreneurs and band-operated businesses that are interested in pivoting, scaling up, or entering joint ventures will also be able to access the program for support. The initiative will include an entrepreneur-in-residence/mentorship program, acceleration services, dedicated spaces for meeting and incubation, and more. RRC Polytech has received $1.5M in federal funding and $773K in provincial funding to support the project.
