Enterprise Saint John connects people, ideas and investments to turn industry opportunities into economic growth.
Enterprise Saint John is the community’s regional economic development agency. Through a number of programs and initiatives, we work to grow the region from the inside out, while also attracting new companies and talent to the community.
Because the majority of a region’s economic growth comes from within, we focus most of our resources on developing new startups through programs like Vennture Garage and SEED loans, helping existing businesses grow through the Catalyst and workforce attraction and development, and working to connect our major industrial players with the ideas and talent they need to improve their businesses. We also facilitate research in our key sectors of Energy and industrial Big Data to provide information to companies looking to relocate and develop.
At the heart of everything we do is the idea of cross-sector collaboration, an evolution of the True Growth model implemented in 2013. Working at the centre of a cross-sector model of industrial collaboration, we connect companies, particularly major industrial players, with the investments, ideas, talent, and facilitators needed to solve challenges affecting their business growth.
