Daniela Mintenko, Dandy’s Artisan Ice Cream

“My passion for ice cream has allowed me to grow so much as a person and to see opportunities in unusual places.
Working hard toward your dreams and what you strongly believe in can be inspiring and contagious.”


Lisa McIntyre, The Optical Shoppe

”I truly believe I was born an entrepreneur, and I was just waiting for the right idea or opportunity.
How I actually became an entrepreneur was through years of working hard and having a passion to lead, set the path for an organization and build a unique legacy.”


Lisa Macmurchy, Brewed Awakening

“I have such a love for our community. What I love about the coffee business is that we can gather together and every day I get to witness so much conversation and laughter amongst people.”



Chelsea Patterson, Farmer Jane

“It's so exciting to be working for local leaders who care about our community as much as I do, who care about making a positive impact on the lives of all the people in the communities we touch.
What's great about starting (or working for) a business in Regina is the resilience of our people and the community that supports us all.”


Sasha Ash, Project Barre Studio

“Becoming an entrepreneur requires taking this blind leap of faith right into your dreams. And I wouldn’t have dreamed of taking this leap to open my first studio in any other city. Regina has this incredible spirit, like an underlying roar of pure fierce. The entrepreneur's journey is a fkn hard one (am I allowed to say that?) but when you have your city right behind you, nothing else matters.”
