Webinar: Immigrant Success Story
Meet a success immigrant and learn from their journey!
Karla Briones arrived in Canada in a U-Haul truck with her family when she was 18 – after a long five-day drive from her native country, Mexico. She is now proudly a Mexican-Canadian serial entrepreneur in the retail and food & beverage industries (Global Pet Foods and Freshii).
She actively gives back to her community and is a business mentor with Futurpreneur Canada, World Skills’ Entrepreneurship Connections program, and the Centre for Social Enterprise Development (CSED). She plays a larger role in business advocacy as a Board of Directors member of the Ottawa Board of Trade.
Guest speaker, lecturer, and generous with her advice, Karla is passionate about growing the entrepreneurship ecosystem in Canada and giving back to the country that welcomed her with open arms.
