Imagination FX took home the 2019 BC Achievement’s Business of the Year award for one-to-two person enterprise. Through goal setting and perseverance, Imagination FX is in an improved position to do the following:
- hire Indigenous contractors,
- give back to community programs,
- while increasing revenues.
Their success has made them an excellent candidate for a BC Achievement Award.
Owned and operated by Jim and Nene Kraneveldt (Hupacasath member), the inspirational business “strives to meet people and organizations where they are, IMAGINE a new desired future, and help make their vision a reality through consulting and video services.” They offer First Nations, non-profit and public sector clients an opportunity to engage with community or seek to improve the lives of members.
The company turns challenges into opportunities. Not unlike many Indigenous peers, Imagination FX face instances of racism and stereotyping. Yet they thrive on shifting negative perceptions of Aboriginal people by remaining professional and true to their culture and values. They educate non-Indigenous clients and partners about doing work in a good way. Throughout the challenges, Imagination FX manages to build strong relationships and greater understanding. “We work hard to model healthy behaviour and thrive in this work to have an impact,” explains Nene.
“We walk in our culture and strive to hold people up. As part of our work we carry forth our individual teachings and ceremony and are willing to share with those who are open to them. We believe wholeheartedly in strength-based approaches that support positivity and reinforce the good in people.”
Imagination FX is motivated to build capacity in their clients, especially First Nations organizations and businesses who are reclaiming their rights to be heard, to be full participants in the economy, and to be successful!
Congratulations Nene, Jim and Imagination FX on a well-deserved acknowledgement of your work!Share
