Manitoba’s Cül Companies Breakfast, March 17/09

Apr 15, 2009 | Corporate Member News

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).

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.

The following videos from the event are now available:
