SASKATOON – Birch Narrows Dene Development Inc. (BNDDI), MMLK Group Inc. and Superior Strategies have partnered to launch All3Innovation LP, a new majority Indigenous-owned technology business.
All3Innovation delivers cutting-edge technology products and services while helping to grow and strengthen Indigenous communities through training and employment, according to a press relase.
“All3Innovation aspires to be a leader in the technology sector, as well as in environmental, social and governance (ESG) best practices. We’re focused on developing meaningful, long-term relationships with customers and Indigenous communities throughout Canada. We look forward to providing leading technology products and services that drive economic development while protecting the environment,” said Mark Hinz, CEO of MMKL Group.
All3Innovation specializes in technology products that contribute to greater efficiencies in the mining, industrial and commercial sectors, using robotics instead of humans in environments that are unsafe as well as helping clients to monitor, measure, analyse and improve performance with regards to ESG performance, the press release states.
“As an Indigenous person and business owner, I’m proud to be working with BNDDI and MMKL to create opportunities for Indigenous participation in the technology sector and to be building a company with partners whose philosophy and values align with those of Indigenous peoples — and by that I mean our collective focus on relationship building, protecting Mother Earth and improving the socio-economic health of our communities,” said Jason Thompson, owner of Superior Strategies.
BNDDI, the economic development arm owned by Birch Narrows Dene Nation, is eager to work with the partners to build sustainable and meaningful employment capacity and economic benefits within Birch Narrows Dene Nation and other Indigenous communities across the country.
“This partnership aligns on many aspects of BNDDI’s strategic business plan,” says Anthony Clark, CEO of BNDDI.
“It creates a diverse product and service offerings that allow Birch Narrows’ community members to participate in the technology sector while engaging our clients in a meaningful way to positively affect ESG attributes of their business.
“Birch Narrows as a community has a strong and vibrant young demographic that will be able to enjoy the benefits of being involved in this sector of the market. Our partners in MMKL and Superior Strategies are a perfect fit in alignment with values, partnership, collaboration and innovation. I look forward to growing this opportunity with them and seeing what we can collectively achieve.”
