A small business incubator sponsored by Bell MTS caught the attention of His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales on his visit to Winnipeg in May. Run entirely by volunteers, AssentWorks helps inventors and entrepreneurs get their ideas off the ground, giving hands-on access to manufacturing equipment, knowledge, and business mentorship. It is a one-stop shop to conceive, innovate, and launch a product or business.
Officially opened in 1905 by His Excellency, Governor General Earl Grey, the five-storey, 55,000-square-foot Manitoba Club in downtown Winnipeg has a prestigious history. But when time came for a $7.5 million renovation, the organization's goal was nothing short of becoming the most technologically-advanced private club in Canada, and to realize this vision, they turned to Bell MTS. We helped the club design, implement, and project manage five key elements of its new strategy and technology roadmap.
