In May 2020, Ownr launched Ownr Grants, a $25,000 fund sponsored by RBC Ventures in their continued support of entrepreneurs in Canada, facing challenges due to COVID-19. Ownr received over 2,000 high-quality applications for this initiative and from the over 2,000 submissions, we are incredibly proud to announce that Urban Minimalist was one of the 25 grant recipients!
In the Spring of 2020, one of our Co-Founders, Curtis Nemechek, was invited to participate in new podcast called Making A Living Show, hosted by Robi Levy. The podcast explores the business of creativity with people who make a living making things. Each episode, Robi Levy interviews an interesting creator who shares their knowledge, experience and expertise balancing creativity, business and life. Our podcast interview aired on July 13th, 2020. We're proud to include excerpts from the conversation below and links to listen to the podcast episode and learn more about the Making A Living Show!
