Our partners work closely with us in guiding us in the mentor/protégé matching process, facilitating monthly seminars, promoting our events to their membership, and point of contact for the Program. They are seen as one of our major or largest corporate sponsors.
Saskatoon and District Chamber of Commerce
The Saskatoon and District Chamber of Commerce has been a partner for Raj Manek Mentorship Program since its initialization. The executive director plays a vital role in matching proteges with mentors and the Chamber facilitates orientation and monthly seminars.
The Chamber is a member-driven organization, made up of 1800 professional, business and community representatives and local individuals. The Chamber promotes ethical business practices, enhances the environment for business growth and job creation, and facilitates strong relationships between community, educational, business and government organizations.
Working with partners in the community, the Chamber works to ensure that Saskatoon has the “Best Business Climate in Canada” and that Saskatoon is a “city of opportunity.”
Innovation Saskatchewan partnered with the Raj Manek Foundation in February 2013 to advance development of an innovative program and culture to support Saskatchewan’s small and medium-sized enterprises.
Growing the number of Saskatchewan entrepreneurs and their companies is the shared objective of the Raj Manek Foundation and Innovation Saskatchewan. The partnership has developed a framework to support the development of resources, activities, tools and programming.
The Raj Manek Foundation and Innovation Saskatchewan have created a valuable teaching tool and resource: a collection of profiles of Saskatchewan-based companies. The case studies will be made accessible to universities and others studying business issues encountered by Saskatchewan companies.
