Entrepreneurship in the Canadian Prairies with Margaux Miller – November 12, 2020

Thrive Podcast - Startup Canada

Business

When you think of the Canadian prairies, a booming entrepreneurial ecosystem is likely not the first thing that comes to mind. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth – just ask Margaux Miller, producer and host of Start Podcast and Program Director at Tech Manitoba.    

As the Program Director of Tech Manitoba, Margaux Miller oversees all technology industry events and programs, supporting province-wide digital literacy, parity for women working in tech, and developing youth and talent for the tech sector. Prior to joining Tech Manitoba, she managed the acquisition of a tech start-up in facial recognition and people tracking technology.

Margaux is the producer and host of Start Podcast, where she interviews the founders of start-ups about what it’s really like to start a business in the Canadian Prairies. 

She is community-minded and has extensive experience working with non-profit organizations. In 2017, Margaux’s community involvement was honoured with the Future Leader of Manitoba award. Margaux currently donates her time to the development committee of the Winnipeg Art Gallery and the community relations committee for Manitoba 150. 

In her spare time, she is an avid soccer player and golfer, and enjoys hiking and exploring Manitoba and abroad. She was also once the voice of a Canadian cartoon.  

“It’s easy to assume the new app or product you’re using comes from an urban centre – you would be surprised at how many of them have been founded in the Canadian prairies.”

On this week’s THRIVE Podcast, sponsored by the Business Development Bank of Canada and Scotiabank, Margaux showcases thriving prairies-based startups and discusses the opportunities and barriers of rural entrepreneurship.
