Karla Briones, went from struggling in a new country to speaking on TEDx.
Karla arrived in Canada with her family when she was 18 and lived the struggles most immigrants experience: cultural, language, environment and job security barriers.
She is now proudly a Mexican-Canadian serial entrepreneur with retail, food and online businesses (i.e. Global Pet Foods, Freshii).
She is the founder of KB Consulting, a business consulting and network agency for immigrant, BIPOC and underrepresented entrepreneurs.
In 2021 she launched the Immigrants Developing Entrepreneurs Academy (IDEA) – an online platform designed to educate and connect newcomers to the Canadian business ecosystem.
Karla is also a business strategist, coach and a independent business advisor at Invest Ottawa. She is a Nation’s Capital Immigrant Entrepreneur of the Year award recipient, Top 25 Immigrant winner in the Entrepreneurship category by Canadian Immigrant Magazine, and a TEDx Speaker on the topic of immigrant entrepreneurship.
