Inspire Nunavut: An Ottawa startup is supporting entrepreneurship in the High Arctic

In October 2014, Ajmal Sataar travelled to Nunavut as part of a conference in Iqaluit, connecting people living in northern Canada with those living in the south. He returned feeling inspired, seeing opportunities for entrepreneurship among the youth in the territory. Sataar decided he would go back and help the young entrepreneurs access the same opportunities he had in business development.
