WEYBURN - Community Futures (CF) Sunrise staff were presented with a prestigious provincial award at the annual CF Saskatchewan Awards Gala held at the Bessborough Hotel in Saskatoon on March 10.
The Award for Excellence and Innovation is awarded to recognize the efforts, innovation, and initiatives contributed by CF organizations in Saskatchewan towards economic development and support to their communities. It was presented to CF Sunrise for the Go Digital Sask program which was chosen by the judges because of the transferability, impact, innovation and creativity of the program.
Go Digital Sask is a program provided free of charge to any business located within the southeast SK region. By signing up at godigitalsask.ca the entrepreneur gains access to personalized support provided by one of the digital student consultants; building key digital platforms and marketing collateral to their business specifications.
Once completed, the entrepreneur then receives the training they need to be able to maintain their online presence as well as being connected to broader after care business services offered by CF Sunrise. The Go Digital Sask team of consultants are post-secondary students who also benefit from their involvement with the program. They receive guided, real world hands on business advisory experience – a great opportunity.
The program has only been available since June 2021 and has already seen more than 100 businesses sign up for assistance!
