Today, Nbisiing Consulting Inc. announced that it will contribute $1000.00 annually to the Edward Two-Axe Early Fund, established to support Indigenous students in the area of business, humanities, law and social justice.
“My family will always be grateful for the time we spent with Edward-ban*, and in particular how he shared so openly his wisdom in business and in life,” said Bob Goulais, President of Nbisiing Consulting Inc. “We’re thankful to be able to honour him by contributing to this fund named for him.”
The Late Edward Two-Axe Early-ban was Onkwehonwe from Kahnawake and founder of Ed Two-Axe Early and Associates. He and his wife, Brenda Gideon, resided at the Listuguj Mi’gmaq Nation, but enjoyed travelling in Indigenous territories across Turtle Island.
Indigenous Financial Solutions (IFS) of Pikwakangan established the Edward Two-Axe Early Fund to recognize and support up-and-coming Indigenous students pursuing higher education and a career in a number of areas, including business.
“IFS has been an amazing collaborator over the years and we are happy to support a noble and worthy scholarship program,” added Goulais.
Nbisiing Consulting recognizes that there are incredible opportunities for First Nations, Métis and Inuit businesses in the new, digital economy. It is important for the business community to begin investing in new skills and technology that can be satisfied by the next generation of young, motivated Indigenous business people.
IFS and Nbisiing Consulting are encouraging other like-minded individuals and businesses to support the Edward Two-Axe Early Fund. If you are interested in contributing, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
