Join us as local entrepreneurs share their hard-won start up successes & laugh out loud blunders. A useful conversation while connecting with a community of engaged Yukoners. Powered by Marg & Rolf Hougen.

We record the talks as we build an archive of the lessons learned by Yukon's most intrepid entrepreneurs.

Entrepreneur Documentary Series: Aurum Skincare

This short documentary elegantly captures the work and ethos of Aurum Skincare. A compelling portrait of two entrepreneurs, Joanne Sherrard and Elise McCormick, who not only sought a solution to their problem, but built a lab to create the solution, bottle it, and then sell it nationally; all while honouring their respect for nature. We hope you feel as moved by Joanne and Elise's purpose and self determination as we are.
