Mooka’am Kwe
She Rises

A Northern Ontario Indigenous Women’s BIZCamp – October 2021


The Mooka’am Kwe: She Rises project is Indigenous-led and provides a flexible learning environment where you can learn alongside a cohort of Indigenous women entrepreneurs. You will be encouraged to set goals throughout the program and to work at your own pace. You will participate in online learning modules, group lab sessions, individual support from two female Elders and will also receive one-on-one business support.
PARO, along with our partners (Service d’assistance canadienne aux organismes (SACO), Blue Sky Healing Centreet Go Forth Institute). Mooka’am Kwe: She Rises supports established business owners who identify as Indigenous and seek new opportunities in non-traditional sectors and to grow their business to the next level. We will begin by looking through the lens of the medicine wheel and introduce tools and the structure required to approach business growth in male dominated businesses such as mining, forestry and construction, as a supplier. We will also introduce you to Export opportunities.
Knowledge is fuel for any business, and PARO will encourage that learning in this BIZCamp. You will discover a wide network of women to collaborate with and to inspire you to go where you want to grow! Elders Cindy Crowe and Melissa Roberts of Blue Sky Community Healing Centre will be available at each session and on an as needed basis for individual sessions throughout the pilot project as you integrate your business with your life.
In this program, you will receive a one-year passcode providing access to Go Forth Institute, an online learning opportunity to learn essential small business skills. There will be presentations about marketing, social media management, finances and you will set your own goals and be supported by mentors as you build your business plan. You will work with a Business Growth Advisor throughout this BIZCamp and beyond to get the backing you need. 
Financial supports will be identified to support your plans for growth. 
Due to COVID-19, the format of the Mooka’am Kwe presentations, labs and other supports will be delivered 100% online through the Zoom platform.
