Indigenous startup looking to win at Pow Wow Pitch

By Adam Riley Aug 16, 2023 | 3:29 PM

A Gull Bay First Nation woman is hoping to win it big as she competes in the semi finals of an Indigenous entrepreneurship competition.

Donna Tremble, of Royalty Data Rewards Club, believes her idea of bringing digitized reward programs to smaller businesses will wow the judges at the Pow Wow Pitch.

“We’re going to put digital rewards club cards on someone’s Apple Wallet, and then anywhere they shop that participates in the program, they just scan it and they get points.”

Additionally Tremble calls the competition an opportunity for self growth.

While she speaks to the judges and present’s her proposal, it has allowed her to work on her public speaking skills.

She also isn’t the only resident of the Northwest who has made it this far in the competition, as Dryden based Blackstone Concrete is also vying for passage to the finals.

Both are making their pitches this week, with voting commencing on Friday.

Should either company win they will pick up a $1000 prize as well as a chance at $25,000.
