Member Testimonials

  • “STEP helped our company expand into other provinces and now STEP is helping us to expand our services to other countries. We appreciate how STEP assists us in attending trade shows by encouraging people to visit our booth, setting up events that allow our company to invite potential clients or by promoting our business at trade shows that we are unable to attend. STEP is like having that extra branch to your company.”

    - Monique Haakensen - Contango Strategies Limited - Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

  • “STEP has helped us immensely with marketing our product. The Market Research offered as part of our membership is a great tool that we have utilized in order to understand the bigger picture so we can grow outside of Saskatchewan. The help we have received from STEP has allowed for us to stay focused on what we need to be focused on.”
