Aboriginal Youth Mean Business!

Jesse Greene

Jesse Greene, Musician and Multi-Media Producer, StrongFront AV and X-Status (band)

Jesse Greene is widely recognized for his work through StrongFront AV, an audio-visual company focusing on the growth and development of the arts and business sectors in Canada and the U.S.

StrongFront's State of the Art facility has been producing Award Winning productions to the Industrial and Broadcast markets coast to coast since 1999. Jesse's hard work and determination has truly paid off and he suggests, "I am proud to say that I have been in business for over nine years and still going strong".

Operating unfinanced for the first seven years, StrongFront expanded operations in 2006 to include a State of the Art Recording Studio and Recod Label called StrongFront Records. Video expansion includes almost every broadcast production service under the sun.

Jesse credits his success to many factors including the time he invested in education, including taking video classes in high school, courses at the University of Regina and Banff Centre for the Arts and the Self-Employment Training Program offered by the City of Winnipeg.

Jesse's other passion is his band, X-Status. X-Status is gaining recognition across North America for their edgy sound and are gaining popularity beyond their expectations.

When asked what advice he would like to pass on to young Aboriginal Entrepreneurs, Jesse suggested "they should be prepared to pay their dues and work their butt off during and prior to running their business". "A good starting point to getting into entrepreneurship is to volunteer your time in the industry you are looking at getting into, so that you can get some hands on experience and learn from others who already have some experience".
