About START Podcast

If you want to be in-the-know about awesome local startups, or if you are thinking of starting something yourself 
and want tips from locals already doing it, then this podcast is for you! 


The START Podcast is focused on promoting entrepreneurship in the Canadian Prairies through interviews with local business founders. Our vision is to help grow Manitoba’s innovation economy.

Hosts and siblings, the Millers, provide two distinct perspectives in this new Innovation Alley podcast, providing insight on both the technical and the creative sides of starting a business.

Focusing on the successes, failures, and lessons learned, the Millers aim to help promote Canadian startup development and growth. Episodes will analyse lessons learned, demystify common concerns, and feature available resources that have helped others in the early phases of their venture.

The ideal result is to limit listener reservations as they look to start a new business, while at the same time shining light on existing local success.

Episodes are between 30-45 minutes in length and are released bi-weekly. Please enjoy Season 1, share our episodes with friends, and support us with feedback or guest ideas: themillers@startpodcast.ca
