CBC Dragon and Beer Baroness to attend Business After Hours social

Entrepreneur and judge on CBC’s Dragons’ Den, Manjit Minhas will be in attendance at the Chamber’s Business After Hours social on Wednesday, October 17th from 4:30 – 6:30 PM at Red Shores, Top of the Park. Minhas is in Charlottetown to deliver the keynote address at the 13th annual Biz2Biz Expo on Thursday, October 18th.

Minhas runs the 10th largest brewery in the world – a brewery she helped build from scratch. Her unprecedented success demolishes stereotypes, surprised her competitors and cleared a path for entrepreneurs of every age and gender.

Minhas has been able to do what few ever thought possible—break into the notoriously competitive and male-dominated beer and spirits industry and grow her company to incredible success. She’s been profiled in Maclean’s, The Globe and Mail and on The National and was recently named one of Canada’s Top 40 Under 40, a distinction honouring outstanding Canadian leaders

At the age of 19, Minhas started Mountain Crest Liquors Inc. (MCLI) and in late 2002 she entered the beer market with Mountain Crest Classic Lager. It quickly became the first successful beer company to enter Canada in decades. MCLI is now making waves international; producing, developing, and marketing over 90 brands, and having served over six billion pints of beer.

Minhas has received many awards, including Canada’s Women Executive Network’s Top 100 Women Entrepreneurs, Profit’s Top Growth Entrepreneur, and Chatelaine’s Top Entrepreneur Woman of The Year.
