This section could introduce each advisor with a photo and short bio, as well as testimonials from businesses they’ve helped. You might include an easy way to contact or schedule a consultation with each advisor.

Showcase your partners and the special offers they provide. This could include logos, brief descriptions of each partner’s services, and specifics of the offers they’re providing for Indigenous businesses.
