Huddle tells the stories of the creative, innovative, and interesting entrepreneurs working in the Maritimes. We report on the issues and events that help or hinder their ability to create wealth and employment. Huddle has a broad definition of entrepreneurship, knowing that it exists in many sectors, including but not limited to IT, energy, agriculture, tourism, food and beverage, health and culture.
We are a news site, and a gathering place for people with ambition who, through their companies and communities, want to help build stronger economies. That includes owners and operators of businesses, people who work for them, and people invested in the success of local companies.
