Today’s episode is the final one in this round of our Newcomer Entrepreneur Series and I am so excited to have the honor of featuring Thanushi Eagalle – Thanu for short – she is the owner of Wild Bee Florals in the Comox Valley.
This episode is produced in collaboration with the Immigrant Welcome Centre’s Welcoming Communities Coalition and the Comox Valley Record Newspaper – which are both based in the beautiful Comox Valley on Vancouver Island.
The goal of this series of interviews aims to learn more about and amplify the voices of newcomers in the Comox Valley who own businesses – and create jobs – in the community. We chat with them about their stories, successes and challenges starting and running their businesses in the Valley. The goal is to help dispel negative misconceptions about the impact of newcomers on the Canadian economy, to highlight diversity and underrepresented voices, and contribute to making our communities more welcoming for all.
