After studying entrepreneurship at Saint Mary’s, Matt Wowchuk left Halifax with the mindset and skills to get started on his own start-up.

The big idea came after chatting with a friend in the craft brewing industry about some of the financial challenges they were experiencing. Brewers were finding it expensive to purchase kegs, so Matt came up with a solution.

Rather than dealing with the up-front costs associated with buying kegs, Matt’s business, North Keg, offers a lease-to-own model. By making kegs more accessible, Matt’s helping breweries across Canada succeed.
