A new Business Development Advisor for Community Futures Centre West

Community Futures Centre West is pleased to introduce their new Business Development Advisor, Aqib Waqar. He completed his studies with the Haskayne School of Business at the University of Calgary, graduating with a Bachelor of Commerce. He has five years of experience working in the lending/finance industry. Aqib has been employed by profit and nonprofit organizations, including an eight-month co-op position out of the Haskayne School of Business as the Junior Business Analyst in the lending portfolio with Community Futures Lac la Biche. Other placements include Enbridge where he was employed as a Credit Advisor and the Nature Conservancy of Canada as a Finance Analyst.

While Aqib has worked in both urban and rural settings, he is happy to once again be working with entrepreneurs & businesses in a rural setting. During his time at Community Futures Lac la Biche he was inspired by the critical work Community Futures Organizations do to support and grow our rural business communities.

Aqib currently resides in Calgary and is looking forward to creating more rural business success stories. He and the Community Futures Centre West team are available to support Airdrie businesses through business loans, training, programs and more.
