Nova Scotia Business Inc. works directly with companies to deliver results for the province.

In all of our activities, NSBI’s employees work with one mission in mind:
To deliver client-focused business solutions that result in strong, sustainable economic growth and prosperity for the Province of Nova Scotia.

NSBI's primary goal is to:
Expand business activity in Nova Scotia.

In doing so, NSBI will:

* Raise the level of wealth and prosperity for the people of Nova Scotia;
* Increase revenues for the Province of Nova Scotia.

NSBI is the first point of contact for local companies that want to grow in Nova Scotia, and for international companies that have heard about the province and want to know more.

We promote the competitive advantages of doing business in Nova Scotia through our five business units: trade development, business advisory services, business financing, venture capital and investment attraction.

NSBI was created in 2001 as Nova Scotia's business development agency led by a private-sector board of directors. Since then, we have welcomed world-renowned companies like BlackBerry maker Research In Motion, and Citco Fund Services, the number one hedge fund administrator, to the province. We have also assisted local companies like electronics manufacturer C-Vision in Amherst, and AG Research, a Sydney-based advanced software engineering firm.
