November 14th, 2018— Halifax, NS – On November 9th, WeUsThem brought RBC and Cox and Palmer together to provide free financial, legal and business advice to local businesses, non-profits, charities, and start-ups. The event, Ad Free 30, brought together over 50 local organizations to connect, learn, and share experiences with direct questions addressed by experts from WeUsThem, RBC and Cox and Palmer and exhibitors from CEED, BBI, Innovacorp, CFIB and Digital NS.
Ad Free 30 is an event for organizations to pose their burning questions and get them answered at no cost or strings attached. Participants submitted their questions and registered for half hour time slots through the day for advice specifically targeted to their pain points. Ad Free 30, addressed the need for quick, reliable, and personalized answers with no generalizations or singular topic based speeches, furthering the responses sought out by these organizations.
“It was a great help to bounce ideas and planning off local professionals who are keen on your success.”, said Christine Oreskovich, The Coast, Publisher, talking about their Oyster Festival, “When members of the business community help each other, Halifax wins.”
The idea was coined by local entrepreneurs, Ashwin Kutty and Faten Alshazly, based on their personal experience and the experiences of those they have mentored in the community.
“This event was about providing organizations across sectors with the information they need specifically to their current pain points and connect them with long-term resources that may have been overlooked or not known about.”, said Ashwin Kutty, CEO of WeUsThem, “WeUsThem has always conducted work in a way that positively affects both the economy and community at large, and this event is an extension of our passion and connection to Nova Scotia.”
WeUsThem Inc. planned Ad Free 30 for the entrepreneurs in Atlantic Canada and this was the first of many Ad Free 30s. Ad Free 30 is intended to offer free and fast consulting sessions at convenience with industry experts. With the popularity of this inaugural Ad Free 30, WeUsThem will bring it back next year with feedback garnered from this years participants on what else to add on for support.
