Hi, I'm Karla Briones, experienced award-winning serial entrepreneur, small business columnist in Canada's Capital daily newspaper, TEDx Speaker and business college instructor at Algonquin College. I came to Canada at 18 in a U-Haul truck after a five-day drive from my country, Mexico.
In the last 10 years, I fell in love with business and opened many – which I still own!
I've navigated entrepreneurship on my own as an immigrant and made many mistakes that I learned from. Now, I've been named Immigrant Entrepreneur of the Year by Canada's Nation's Capital. I've helped hundreds of entrepreneurs launch, scale, and exit their businesses.
To help out more aspiring immigrant entrepreneurs, I decided to put all my experience and knowledge in online courses to help you succeed and scale faster. My commitment is to help you along your business journey!
You can ask me questions and get feedback during our weekly “Office Hours” calls along with my team of talented immigrant entrepreneur mentors.
These fellow immpreneurs bring expertise from business plan writing, legal aspects, business immigration, accounting, marketing, franchises and more.
