Krista Halliday is a serial entrepreneur on a mission to disrupt the brand ecosystem as we know it. Leading by example, Krista is focused on creating and supporting better products and building better brands that are led with purpose, integrity, and prioritize social good.

Krista is passionate about educating the everyday Canadian on their vital role in this eco-system, to challenge the norms and demand better of brands and retailers by using our purchasing power as leverage.

A daughter of a single mother from humble beginnings, Krista quickly learned the value of hard work and started her first job at the young age of 12. After University, Krista forged her retail experience at household brands including Revlon, Holt Renfrew, Rexall and Jarden Home Brands where she acknowledged a white space in the market – a need for experienced consultation that would help US and European beauty brands navigate the unique Canadian retail landscape.

At just 28 years old, Krista started her first company, Global Edge Brands based in Toronto, and grew it to be Canada’s leading retail and brand consulting company that worked with renowned brands such as the Honest Company, Disney, Nurtibullet and more. Maneuvering this male-dominated industry as a young female executive was no easy feat, and fortified Krista’s dedication as a woman-in-leadership advocate and supporter.

A serial entrepreneur gaining speed in the Canadian marketplace, Krista has leveraged her leadership, innovation and business prowess to launch three additional businesses in the last 5 years, greatly supporting the local Hamilton economy – Little Sprouts Daycare, Nest Coworking, and retail shop Luv La Vie, two of which have been nominated and won Readers Choice Awards 3 years running. With much more on the horizon, Krista is one to watch. This year, she is also the recipient of Hamilton Business Link 40 under 40.

Purush Cannane is the king of upcycle, the bigger sister to recycling

Purushothaman Cannane (Purush) creatively combined his engineering skill, passion for solving environmental problems, and his drive to help vulnerable communities when he founded Greenii to create paper bags from clean waste papers such as newsprints, magazines, flyers, and brochures. Avoiding post-consumer paper in order to bypass the need for additional environmentally unfriendly chemicals and processes, he sources high-quality paper wastes from libraries, corporate offices, paper mills, flyer distributors, universities, and printing presses, offers employment to recently immigrated women or refugees, and has now sold thousands of carrier bags in Canada and the USA to replace single-use plastic bags.

Not stopping yet, Purush has gone on to invent equipment (Semi-automatic assembly, first in the world to swiftly process newsprints, and magazines into paper bags) to facilitate growth in production volumes, and is expanding into box packaging as well. While handmade bags may continue to form a part of the product offering, it is the raw materials used that ensure bags will always remain unique. He even affords customers the opportunity to convert their unused, expired marketing materials and paper products into new packaging products for use by themselves or another environmentally conscious and creative business.

Un restaurant complet 3 mois à l’avance depuis 2015 voici un des succès de Vincent Chatigny de Chez Biceps B.B.Q

Encore à l’école de cuisine, Vincent Chatigny commence sa carrière en 1998 au Laurie Raphael ou déjà, les produits locaux sont mis à l’honneur dans un cadre gastronomique.

Six ans plus tard, il quitte pour travailler, entre autres, avec les italiens ou il se découvre une véritable passion pour une cuisine traditionnelle simple, savoureuse et un modèle d’affaire axé sur la passion et la performance. Par la suite, un passage à la Boucherie de la ferme Eumatimi ou il approfondit ses connaissances autant techniques que sur le métier de fermier en travaillant étroitement avec (feu) Mario Pilon, un éleveur bovin devenu boucher. Des stages en France, cours de nutrition, Vincent à aussi enseigné durant un an à l’école hôtelière de la Capitale.

C’est au cours de ses nombreux voyages à travers l’Amérique du Nord dans le cadre de l’émission Bouffe en Cavale, une série qu’il a coanimée pendant sept saisons sur les ondes d’Évasion, qu’il a développé un lien étroit entre son style de cuisine, le contact avec le produit brut et l’engagement social d’un restaurant.

C’est ainsi qu’en décembre 2015, il a ouvert Chez Biceps B.B.Q, ou les produits locaux sont mis en valeur dans un environnement fortement inspiré par la culture B.B.Q. du sud des États-Unis. Une carte des vins originale, des bières de microbrasseries et un grand choix de whiskys nord-américain côtoient le fumoir artisanal texan de 1 000 lb fonctionnant au bois d’érable.
