Ag-West Bio was actually our first supporter in the province. We came to them for networking and advice. The initial interest from Ag-West Bio was a boost of confidence; it's really helped us get a foothold in the province.
The financial help we received through Ag-West Bio Inc. in the early years opened so many doors for us, while the guidance and mentorship they provided was just as instrumental.
Ag-West Bio has delivered scientific, marketing and financial support and guidance to countless individuals and organisations....
AWB’s financial assistance and support for me to attend a first class mentoring accelerator event helped to provide my business a lifeline when I needed it most...I don’t think I would be in business today if it wasn’t for AWB’s financial assistance and support.
I received support from Ag-West Bio that has been instrumental in helping Prester Foods have a step-to-step commercialization and investment strategy.
Every industry requires a champion. Ag-West Bio is that for the growing and critical bioscience sector in Saskatchewan. Networking, policy, education, investment, mentorship and leadership are key components to a fertile ecosystem and Ag-West Bio and their team have delivered in spades.
We've also been working with Ag-West, and they've been excellent at connecting us with people in the industry, and connecting us with a lot of other resources...
