N.S. Black-Owned Travel Company Gets Funding to Grow

René Boudreau is the founder of Elevate and Explore Black Nova Scotia, a travel company geared towards Black travellers within the Atlantic region. The company’s tours highlight Black Nova Scotian history and culture to potential Black tourists from around the world. What started with a single Instagram post is now a profitable company, and Boudreau announced she is using new funding to help her company grow. Recently, she was one of a hundred business owners accepted into a mentorship program through American Express called Blueprint: Backing BIPOC Businesses, geared towards business owners who are Black, Indigenous, and other people of colour. Each participant received a $10,000 grant to put towards their business.
