“In our early days with the company there was a lot of predetermined programs; it was about fitting square pegs into round holes, seeing if you could find programs that lined up with your business needs. There’s been a shift in approach with ONB's creation. I think the organization recognized that certain programs would not work for everyone, that not every company’s needs fit within narrowly defined parameters.
The shift has been towards sitting down with businesses and asking what their actual needs are, then seeing how ONB can help. That’s when our business really took off. We’ve had a great deal of success over the past two plus years, doubling our workforce and growing the business exponentially. Support from ONB was a big part of that.”

“With a small jurisdiction like this, private equity investment isn’t always as accessible as it may be in larger North American centres – you have to look for partners like Opportunities NB. It’s not just financing, however, though that is obviously important. It’s about help with recruiting world-class people, market entry programs, opportunities to attend trade shows with other like-minded local companies, and access to ONB resources like export webinars and informational sessions.”
