The first-ever Manitoba’s Cül Companies Breakfast was a great hit, attracting a wide array of entrepreneurs, government officials, students and private sector organizations dedicated to helping businesses grow.
Entitled ‘Insights From Some of Manitoba’s Remarkable & Rising Entrepreneurs’ the event featured leaders from three amazing companies:
- Rory Bochinski, President, Shocknife®
- Robb Denomme, CEO, Genuwine Cellars
- Heidi Reimer-Epp, General Manager, Botanical PaperWorks
Botanical PaperWorks produces eco-friendly paper that you can actually plant when you are done with it. Called Garden GreetingsTM, it is made with pure North American wildflower seeds and a base fibre of cotton or 100 per cent post-consumer waste (no trees were cut down to make it). http://www.botanicalpaperworks.com/
Genuwine Cellars provides imaginative and distinctive custom-made wine cellars to high-end wine connoisseurs – we’re talking cathedrals, shrines to wine.
Shocknife®’s composite blade is incapable of cutting, but it gives you a shock that simulates the feeling of being knifed. For those involved in the military, corrections and law enforcement it is a huge step forward in inducing the fear and stress required for realistic training. http://www.shocknife.com/
