12 WINNIPEG COMPANIES NAMED FINALISTS
FOR INAUGURAL SPIRIT OF WINNIPEG AWARDS
Awards to be handed out March 5th Recognize Innovation and Entrepreneurship
Jan. 26, 2010 – The quality of entries for the inaugural Spirit of Winnipeg Awards made
it no easy task to select 12 finalists from among 49 applicants, Winnipeg Chamber of
Commerce President and CEO Dave Angus said today as the finalists were announced at the
State of the City Address today at the Winnipeg Convention Centre.
“But we’re not complaining – it’s a good problem to have, especially since this is the first
time the awards have been held,” Angus said, adding innovation and entrepreneurship help
define our city, and the awards recognize local businesses and not-for-profit organizations
that best exemplify those traits.
On March 5, The Chamber, together with BDO and Marketplace Magazine, will announce
the award recipients in each of four categories at a gala dinner at the Fairmont Winnipeg.
Congratulations go to the finalists:
