Jump On wins Innovation Award from Calgary Chamber of Commerce
Tour company also named as a finalist for Calgary Small Business of the Year Award
“Our team was very excited to be named as a finalist in the Innovation category as well as Small Business of the Year category of the Calgary Chamber of Commerce’s Small Business Week Awards after less than one year in business,” says Roger Jewett, CEO of upstart Calgary-based tour company Jump On Flyaways.
“Winning the Innovation Award is a real honour and a testament to the fact that when people are passionate about a business idea and support it with creativity and energy – anything is possible. I am pleased to be a part of a very talented team at Jump On that has taken this idea from the back of a napkin to a viable business in just a few months. And the great news is that we’re just getting started. There’s so much more we can do to bring low cost travel options to Canadians.”
The Innovation Award, presented by McLeod Law LLP is part of the Calgary Chamber of Commerce’s annual Small Business Week Expo and Awards program. The award is presented to the Calgary small business demonstrating ground breaking achievements in improving work processes, business concept development or product creation and who has successfully implemented or marketed these developments.
Jewett added that the recognition created by winning the Innovation Award from the Calgary Chamber of Commerce will help create heightened awareness for Jump On’s innovative approach to air travel.
