Advolve makes a media splash in Winnipeg’s startup scene

Advolve Media has been selected among 10 regional businesses across Canada in the TELUS and Globe and Mail Small Business Challenge.

This is another feather in Advolve Media’s cap after just yesterday being selected as Top 5 Canadian startup that will be competing at the ‘Olympics for Startups’ in Kansas City, and a week after competing at NACO’s National Angel Summit and narrowly missing the top 5.

“All the recognition and media is really exciting and is definitely valuable towards the growth of our business,” said Bryce North, Advolve’s CEO. “It’s a high level of validation that should open doors to more investors, and hopefully encourage them to open their wallets as well.”

North, who is currently heavily focused on expanding Advolve’s business across Canada, gives some of the credit for his startup stardom to his community supporters.

“It’s organizations like Innovate Manitoba and Futurpreneur that make these opportunities happen,” said North. “We would have been too focused on our business to be searching for opportunities like this, and these organizations not only let us know about the opportunities, they quite literally nudge us into applying and meeting deadlines.”

In this case, the nudging was done by Joelle Foster, regional director of Futurpreneur Canada, a not-for-profit organization focused on helping young entrepreneurs.

“I see the entrepreneurs that come through our programs as part of a family, and I’m very maternal in that sense,” said Foster.  “Bryce needed a few motherly reminders on this one, and as you know, mom is always right.”

A key theme from the last few weeks is the continued rise of Winnipeg’s startup scene, with Advolve Media, Permission Click and Exigence Technologies all being recognized at the national level in various ways.

“One or two years ago, if you asked someone outside of Manitoba whether Winnipeg had a startup community, you likely have been met with blank stares,” said Jan Lederman, president of Innovate Manitoba. “Winnipeg has really made a splash this year and this could just be the beginning.”

Success stories are often a key element to engaging those would-be entrepreneurs and potential startups who are sitting on the fence, are adverse to risk, or are just too busy.

“We proudly share these stories with the community,” said Lederman “I think we are already seeing the affects, with increasing numbers of young people eagerly pursuing entrepreneurship and getting involved.”

REMINDER: Innovate Manitoba’s next opportunity for entrepreneurs is Pitch’Day.  Anyone with a new business idea can enter to compete. Advolve won Best Technology Pitch at Pitch’Day 2012, and several other successful startups have included Pitch’Day as an important step in their journey.

Get In The Ring Canada Finalist

Winnipeg Free Press – ONLINE EDITION

Advolve qualifies as a finalist for Get in the Ring Canada

Advolve Media is the latest Winnipeg startup to help confirm that this city has become a hotbed of new company activity.

The makers of custom displays that offers brand advertising through their proprietary Mirage Mirrors has qualified as a finalist for Get in the Ring Canada.

It’s one of five Canadian startups that will head to Kansas City on Nov. 6, 2014 to compete for a chance to pitch at a global competition in the Netherlands with all expenses paid.

Futurpreneur Canada (formerly Canada Youth Business Foundation) is the Canadian sponsor of this program based out of the Netherlands.

Advolve’s partners Bryce North and Kris Luinenburg also recently competed against 15 other startups from across Canada for the title of Canada’s Most Promising Startup and narrowly missed making it to the top five.

That honour was taken by another Manitoba startup, Chris Johnson’s Permission Click, which won the overall competition.

Get in the Ring refers to itself as “the Olympics for Startups.” The event give startups a global podium from which to connect with investors and create a fan base.

Interviews and stories by Amber Nasrulla

 

A new addition to the 2014 Small Business Challenge was the regional winner category. We wanted to recognize more of the amazing businesses that apply for the $100,000 grant. Each year it’s harder and harder for our judges to select just one winner, so we let them also select 10 more small businesses to recognize and award a technology prize pack. We’re so very proud to reveal this year’s 10 regional winners and introduce you to their diverse businesses. We look forward to reading all of the entries that 2015 will bring, and to see the new finalist, semi-finalists, and regional winners that will come out of the competition.

Advolve Media

Nothing makes Bryce North, founder of Winnipeg-based Advolve Media, happier than when he learns people have been sprinting out of the washroom yelling, “Oh my God, come inside, you have to see what I just saw. It’s fantastic!”

What they just saw is one of his interactive advertising mirrors, in the washroom of a restaurant or nightclubs. When you stand in front of it, the mirror transforms and you see digital ads. This modern-day “mirror on the wall” doesn’t tell you who is the fairest of them all, but it will display a cheerful beer commercial, or show you models in luxury suits, or talk about a new restaurant. The mirrors have been custom-made and tested at six venues in Winnipeg.

“People have been taking selfies in front of the mirror and posting them on social media,” says North.

His plan is to expand across Canada. The challenge is securing funding to improve the technology so the mirrors can ‘communicate’ with smartphones. And Advolve needs a larger design team. After just one year in business their revenue was $100,000. North says he’s trying to raise funds locally and will head to Silicon Valley in late October to talk to investors. “This is just beginning,” he says.
