Gerry Landry, DewAir

DewAir is scaling operations with success in recent months, but we’ve had our share of struggles during the first year of operations. The main distribution and supply chain we were counting on to sell our disruptive technology didn’t materialize. We knew the end user would reap benefits of our technology, but unfortunately the middlemen we would have worked with didn’t see value in it for them. We weren’t prepared to give up, and Link North who’s supported us all along is providing direction, support and access to funding as we pivot our business model.
Brianna Demers, Just Beecause Chocolates and Confections

Link North helped us reconfigure and modernize our kitchen facility and chocolate-making equipment, and we realized some pretty significant productivity improvements. With their support we’ve increased our daily production by 50% and improved our tempering process, achieving higher consistency and quality with our chocolate bonbons. With a more efficient kitchen, we now have more time to delight our customers with a wider offering of products to fill their sweet tooth.

Over the years Link North’s provided strategic direction and helped us secure various funding for prototyping and market development for our Sure-Align Tracker products. With their support we’ve been able to hone our efforts on business development and growth.
Don Dupuis, SurveyTech Instruments & Services

Since founding SurveyTech in 2016, we’ve expanded our business to include a few satellite offices to support our growing customer base. As we scaled operations, it became apparent that the equipment tracking and client management systems adopted at startup were starting to create bottlenecks and gaps in information. Link North provided support for us to bring in an expert who assessed our needs and proposed a tailored solution. The resulting new streamlined and integrated system we now use provides accurate and reliable information from which I can make informed business decisions.
