Accurate Drafting

Seeking flexibility to more easily manage the demands of family life with two children under the age of two prompted Sheri to ask her hospital employer if she could work from home on contract. In 2007, Sheri took on one 18-month contract and her business began to grow via word-of-mouth.

Global Healthcare Connections Inc.

Adele Kulyk

Remsoft Inc.

Years ago, Andrea Feunekes and her husband looked at the way land was being managed and knew there was a better way to approach sustainable resources. They decided to start their own business to see if they could figure out a way to make it work.


Natalie Dakers

Natalie Dakers seems to be “good at...making things happen.” Dakers can see the gaps in a business, and figure out the best way to address the issue. She says she brings the business perspective to science, and drives early innovation to a place where it can shine. It’s these qualities that have contributed to Dakers success in starting four separate companies.
