Turn a great idea into a thriving business.
After signing up for Futurpreneur's Start-Up program, Michelle Leona opened a taproom (Winnipeg’s first-ever “kombuchery”) for her organic kombucha business in January 2020. When COVID-19 hit, Leclair pivoted to online sales. Since then, her business has grown so much, she has plans to expand to other provinces and build a larger production space in the coming months.
