Alberta Business Spotlight: Buttercream Clothing

 Candice Munro, founder of Buttercream Clothing, speaks to Karen Unland of the Alberta Podcast Network, powered by ATB, at the ATB Entrepreneur Centre in Calgary on Sept. 12, 2018.

Candice Munro, founder of Buttercream Clothing, speaks to Karen Unland of the Alberta Podcast Network, powered by ATB, at the ATB Entrepreneur Centre in Calgary on Sept. 12, 2018.

Candice Munro started her business by sewing aprons at her kitchen table in Kelowna. It quickly evolved into Buttercream Clothing, a full-fledged company with a warehouse in Calgary and a growing customer base that loves buying and wearing her clothes and accessories, ethically made in Canada.

There’s something about buttercream that tastes like more, and Munro has found that Buttercream’s fans can’t get enough of her wares, either. Some were so excited to support her company that they helped raise $25,000 in less than 24 hours through ATB LendR.

Hear more about that successful campaign and what it has allowed Buttercream to achieve; how Candice and her husband juggle entrepreneurship while raising four children; and Buttercream’s contribution to the revival of a local garment industry:

Check out the new fall line at buttercreamclothing.com. You can also find the company on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.

If crowdlending could help your business, or you’re looking to lend some money to a promising Alberta-based business, be sure to check out ATB LendR.

Alberta Business Spotlight: Burgundy Oak

 Zac Hartley, chief operating officer of Burgundy Oak, speaks to Karen Unland of the Alberta Podcast Network, powered by ATB, at the ATB Entrepreneur Centre in Calgary on Sept. 12, 2018.

Zac Hartley, chief operating officer of Burgundy Oak, speaks to Karen Unland of the Alberta Podcast Network, powered by ATB, at the ATB Entrepreneur Centre in Calgary on Sept. 12, 2018.

From Mom’s garage to the ATB BoostR stage to Dragons’ Den and beyond — that’s the trajectory of Burgundy Oak, a Calgary-based company that turns whiskey and wine barrels into unique furniture and home decor.

You’ll get to see the Burgundy Boys pitch the Dragons on Oct. 11 (on CBC at 8 p.m. MST). We can’t tell you how they did, but we can confirm after talking to chief operating officer Zac Hartley that this is a fascinating and growing business that hasn’t stopped innovating since it incorporated in 2015.

Hear more about “the coincidence made in heaven” that led to the company; the research-and-development work that left its mark on Zac’s hands; and the role ATB has played in Burgundy Oak’s success — all of that and more is in this conversation recorded at the ATB Entrepreneur Centre in Calgary:

Find your signature piece of furniture or unique gift, crafted from recycled wine or whiskey casks, at burgundyoak.com. You can also find the company on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, and you can learn more about the Dragons’ Den process on YouTube.

If you’re looking for guidance to make your small business a success, you’ll find it at ATB’s Entrepreneur Centres. If crowdfunding sounds like a good way to test the market and prove your product’s value, check out ATB BoostR.

October is Small Business Month, which is why we’re shining a light on some small businesses that our founding sponsor, ATB Financial, has helped out. Watch for more Alberta Business Spotlights in the coming weeks.

'Let's Do Coffee' comes to the table

What a pleasure it is to introduce you to our latest affiliated podcast, Let’s Do Coffee, an extension of the excellent work done by the Mawji Centre for New Venture and Student Entrepreneurship at NAIT.

Every entrepreneur has a story to tell, lessons learned and wisdom earned. In Edmonton, many of the most successful entrepreneurs are very willing to share their stories and expertise. But they don’t have time to have coffee with all of us! So the Mawji Centre, led by Max Frank, is tapping into that wealth of knowledge on our behalf with this new podcast.

The biweekly show will feature interviews with student entrepreneurs and alumni of the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology. You can get a sense of what the podcast will be like from this trailer episode.

You can also hear Episode 1, featuring Ashif Mawji, the centre’s namesake and the founder of Upside Software, TrustScience and other software-related companies. Host and NAIT student Daniel van Veelen digs into his origin story and unlocks some valuable advice.

Let’s Do Coffee joins our other affiliated podcasts — We Are Alberta and Perch from ATB Financial; The Well Endowed Podcast from the Edmonton Community Foundation; Katrina Ingram’s Back to School Again, presented by NorQuest College; and OtherWise, made under the auspices of the Ribbon Rouge Foundation. We love using the power of our network to draw attention to these shows, and look forward to doing the same for many more.

We'll never miss out on Emily Missed Out

emilymissedout.jpg

Today we have the great good fortune of announcing the latest member of the Alberta Podcast Network, powered by ATB — Emily Missed Out (or did she?).

This podcast has such a fantastic premise. The titular Emily, aka Emily Devereux, missed out on a lot of popular movies in her youth. As a result, she’s missing some of the cultural literacy that helps you, say, understand the jokes in a Simpsons episode. Her friend, Breanne Byrne, is helping her fill in the gaps by introducing her to what she missed.

They watch the films, review the references and tropes, and decide whether Emily actually did miss out on something good the first time around or should have left well enough alone. If you’ve never seen the movie, you can learn along with Emily; if you have seen it, you can play along with Breanne and see if the show is as good (or bad) as you remember.

Emily Missed Out makes a delightful addition to our roster of movie-related podcasts: Bollywood is for Lovers, I Have Some Notes and Repodcasting. Like many of our podcasts, it’s also a window into a friendship, which is just a nice thing to hear.

The next episode of this biweekly podcast comes out on Oct. 11. It’s about Donnie Darko (your correspondent will be sympathizing with Emily for that one.) Subscribe in Apple Podcasts, Spotify or anywhere else you catch your ‘casts. You can also follow Emily Missed Out on Instagram and Facebook, where you’ll be reminded of the references that originated in these films.

Park Power brings energy to the network

We are charged up to announce our latest sponsor, Park Power, a Sherwood Park-based provider of electricity and natural gas.

In Alberta, you get to choose who you buy your energy from. You’re tapping into the same supply as everyone else, but you decide on the retailer. Park Power makes it possible for you to shop local when it comes to making this choice.

 Kris Kasawski, owner of Park Power

Kris Kasawski, owner of Park Power

Supporting local enterprises is important to both Park Power and the Alberta Podcast Network, powered by ATB, so we go together very well.

“Why is local important to me? Because I can see it,” says Park Power’s owner, Kris Kasawski. “I believe in making the world around you a better place and am proud that our billing and customer service is based here in Alberta instead of outsourced to a foreign country.  There are many factors in the Alberta and local economy, and I am glad we can contribute positively with local jobs and charitable support.”

Park Power’s support of the network will allow us to better promote our Alberta-made podcasts. Your support of Park Power gives you the satisfaction of keeping your money close to home, and you can save money, too, as overhead at an operation like Park Power is lower than at a big company. (Here’s a calculator so you can find out what you would save.)

On top of all of that, Park Power shares 10 per cent of its profits with local charities. When you sign up, you choose which one to direct that money to.

If you already buy your power and gas from someone else, Kris says it’s easy to switch, and nothing changes about your supply of electricity or natural gas. His services are available in most areas of Alberta.

You’ll hear more about all of that on our podcasts in the coming weeks and months. In the meantime, follow Park Power on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook to see what the guy in the bowtie is up to, and to enjoy the local love that Park Power spreads.

Good news abounds at The Well Endowed Podcast

A lot of exciting things are happening over at The Well Endowed Podcast, so this seems like a good time to highlight our first affiliated podcast.

The Well Endowed Podcast is a production of the Edmonton Community Foundation, which acts as a bridge between donors and charities to help create a strong, vibrant community for generations to come. The foundation helps people create endowment funds (hence the podcast’s name), and the podcast tells the stories of donors and the community-building activities that their funds make possible.

We’re grateful to the foundation for its support of the network, and we’re so proud to have this excellent podcast affiliated with the network. We’re not alone in our admiration — The Well Endowed Podcast has been nominated for two Canadian Online Publishing Awards, in the business and consumer categories. (On the consumer side, it’s up against Let’s Find Out, one of our member podcasts and another community-focused show.) The awards are handed out on Nov. 14 in Toronto.

We’re blessed with more Well Endowed than ever before this month, as the team — made up of Elizabeth Bonkink, Andrew Paul and Lisa Pruden — is experimenting with a weekly schedule instead of a monthly one. So far this month, they’ve published Episode 25: ArtsCommon and Not-So-Common Arts and Episode 26: Investing in People (featuring an interview with Arlene Dickinson), and another is on its way. Be sure to subscribe in your podcatcher of choice so you don’t miss an episode. (Click on the image above for a 30-second teaser about the show.)

Finally, the Well Endowed team is looking for your input. Please take a few minutes to answer their listener survey to help guide future decisions about the podcast.

The Well Endowed Podcast paved the way for other affiliated podcasts created by sponsors, including We Are Alberta from ATB Financial; Back to School Again, created by Katrina Ingram in partnership with NorQuest College; and OtherWise, created under the auspices of the Ribbon Rouge Foundation with support from the Edmonton Heritage Council.

If your business or organization has a podcast or is thinking of starting one, we’d love to use the power of our network to draw attention to your work. Learn more about sponsorship, and get in touch at hello@albertapodcastnetwork.com.
