For the third year in a row, Fusion Credit Union is proud to present “Community Infusion”, the business idea competition that infuses economic growth and prosperity into our local
communities. Past winners of Community Infusion include Dusty’s Butcher Shop from Dauphin and Fierce Female Hockey from Brandon.
Entrepreneurs with either a new business idea, or existing business they are looking to grow or purchase, are asked to apply by Sunday, June 18, 2023, at midnight. Selected applicants will move to the next phase of the competition which will require a business plan submission. Up to five finalists will then be selected to pitch their idea to a live judging panel on Wednesday, October 18, 2023, in Brandon, for a chance to share in up to $30,000 in financial grants.
“At Fusion, we are Here for Good, and to us, that means we are committed to our communities today and for the long term,” says Fusion CEO Darwin Johns. “We are proud to offer Community Infusion for a third year as a tangible means of sparking ongoing economic development in our communities across the province.”
Mike Csversko, Business Development Manager for Fusion, notes that, “Positive community impact is a foundational pillar within our organization. As a locally based financial institution in the Parkland and Southwestern Manitoba, we consider community impact and contribution to be at the core of our DNA. The Community Infusion initiative is one more way in which Fusion will play a role in supporting job creation, providing entrepreneurial support, and encouraging community engagement and business development in our trading area.”
