BURLINGTON, Ontario – November 30, 2021- Rapid Dose Therapeutics Corp. (“RDT” or the “Company”) (CSE: DOSE), a Canadian biotechnology company revolutionizing drug delivery through innovation, has entered into a strategic business development agreement with AB Strategic Ventures (“ABSV”) with the purpose of supporting relationship building with First Nations business enterprises through the fulfillment and sale of products made by Indigenous people to markets across Canada. Additionally, the agreement will support product development, branding, marketing and sales in partnership with Indigenous peoples and their respective communities to ensure cultural authenticity and appropriate positioning.

“We are pleased to partner with Indigenous peoples and businesses in building mutually beneficial relationships that will fuel their growth and nurture their economic visions,” said Mark Upsdell, CEO Rapid Dose Therapeutics. “This partnership with ABSV will assist us on our journey of understanding while appreciating the cultural values that will lead to thoughtful and meaningful collaborations all across Canada.”

ABSV works directly with Indigenous communities to promote economic and capacity development with a focus on increasing their own-source revenue streams. ABSV has raised capital, developed business and marketing plans, and has led community consultations with the private sector to custom tailor cooperation agreements that benefit all. Working with First Nations in every province and territory of Canada, ABSV has worked with more than 100 Indigenous communities throughout Canada to support the development of their economies.

“RDT has demonstrated a commitment to champion Indigenous business enterprises and we’re pleased to assist them in bringing broad-scale awareness to First Nations across Canada,” said Arnold Bomberry of AB Strategic Ventures. “Inclusivity is a much-needed approach in today’s landscape and we look forward to the opportunities that bring communities together.”

Initial product collaboration will include both RDT and private label branded products in the lifestyle, health and wellness sectors, including vitamins, nutraceuticals and topicals.

ABSV agrees to provide ongoing advisory services to RDT for an initial period of two years.
