What are you making? How can we help?
Edmonton Made is a collaborative entrepreneurial program committed to the growth of local businesses and encouraging the exposure of Edmonton made products and services. Through a collective identity, Edmonton Made will give entrepreneurs an opportunity to make a greater impact through a unified voice. There is an opportunity for Make Something Edmonton/Edmonton Economic Development to help more small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), like you, scale and streamline your businesses to grow within our city and beyond our borders.
The three areas we are focussing the Edmonton Made pilot on are:
Build a support network through programming, mentorship, community-building, etc.
Edmonton Made Identity
Collaborating with you to create a unified voice that speaks for the quality of Edmonton made goods locally and abroad.
Grow it Local
We're exploring concepts, such as, an Edmonton Made storefront or e-commerce platform.
The result is an increase in your profits and longevity for your business.
And your success means a positive impact on Edmonton.
Edmonton Made raises exposure of Edmonton businesses through:
Sharing stories and interviews of Edmonton business and business owners.
Creating a collaborative brand, giving local entrepreneurs an opportunity to both self-identify and to show their support for other local entrepreneurs.
Connecting entrepreneurs to the resources they need to achieve their ambitions.
- Exposure of Edmonton made consumer products through City of Edmonton and Edmonton Economic Development Corporation (EEDC) initiatives.
