The World Indigenous Business Network (WIBN) is a global online community created by members of The World Indigenous Business Forum (WIBF) to connect, inspire, mobilize and support organizations and entrepreneurs in the sustainable development of Indigenous businesses.
Its goal is to increase participation in the global economy by providing opportunities to broaden markets, improve access to business potential, increase Indigenous economic benefits from major resource development and energy investments, and increase Indigenous prosperity through economic growth.
The WIBN provides important connection and support to Indigenous business people who can be isolated in their communities, limited in their potential prosperity and dependent on external providers and intermediaries. The Network provides for exchanges of ideas, generation of proposals, creation of partnerships and bringing investment to communities, entrepreneurs and organizations.
“By connecting without intermediaries, partnerships come together. Mutual business & investment opportunities can happen.”
—Rosa Walker, President and CEO
