Why was idea created?

IDEA was created to help Canadian immigrants like you start a successful business easier and faster than you could have ever imagined. 

This ten-week step-by-step roadmap is tailored specifically so you can navigate hurdles and challenges associated with starting a business in a new country. 

The best thing: it is designed by a fellow immigrant entrepreneur who has successfully established a multitude of successful businesses in Canada. 

This course is built on the lessons that Karla Briones has learned as an immigrant entrepreneur, she shares them with you to make your journey easier. 

Who Is IDEA For?

Are you a newcomer in Canada with a business idea?

 Are you still in your home country but plan to come to Canada and open/operate a business?

 Have you been thinking non-stop about a business idea but have no clue how to start?

 Do you need a support group to help you stay on track and motivated?

 Would you like to expand your network of successful immigrant mentors in different fields to help in your business?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, IDEA is for you!

 

About karla

Hey there! I am an immigrant just like you. I came to Canada at 18 in a U-Haul truck after a five-day drive from my home country, Mexico. My family and I lived the difficulties of being a newcomer in Canada. I understand you because I am just like you.

In the last ten years, I fell in love with business and opened two retail shops, a restaurant, an e-commerce site, and a consulting firm – which I still own! Recently I received the Immigrant Entrepreneur of the Year award recognizing my contributions to Canada’s economy.

I have navigated entrepreneurship on my own as an immigrant and made so many mistakes that I learned from. I wish a course like  IDEA  existed when I was starting out. Fast forward to 2020 and that course still did not exist, so I decided to make a program that incorporated all of my experience and knowledge so that you do not have to make the same mistakes that I made. This program will help you succeed and scale faster with the support of peers and other mentors.
