Rivers Corbett mba
In 1998, Rivers invested $2,000 in a small start-up bringing chefs into people’s homes. By 2007, it had grown into a seven-figure talent agency providing chefs for private and corporate events including cooking classes in Sobeys and other retailers.
When COVID abruptly halted that business, he launched ChefTorial, an online company with operations in three countries that brings experiential culinary classes to virtual events such as corporate conferences, fundraisers, and dinner parties.
Rivers is also the man behind Relish, the former iconic Atlantic Canada burger chain known for its gourmet burgers and welcoming approach to customer service.
The secret ingredient in all these ventures?
He zags where other people zig.
In short, Rivers does things differently.
He’s been a founding board member of Startup Canada, was the entrepreneur in residence for the Province of New Brunswick, Mount Allison University and the University of New Brunswick and is the author of 4 books to help guide entrepreneurs towards success.
Other accolades include being twice named Fredericton’s Entrepreneur of the Year, recognized in Profit Magazine’s Hottest Start-ups List, and listed as one of Canada’s Top Ten Mentors.
Today, Rivers continues to help small businesses succeed through Headspace for Entrepreneurs, a community of global entrepreneurs and through his coaching business – Ask Rivers.
His specialties include:
- Bringing business ideas to market using the Business Model Canvas as the foundation for success.
- Helping entrepreneurs develop and implement marketing and sales strategies using Profit Acceleration Software as the engine which builds profits AND revenues.
