It’s now 2021. The year we’ve ALL been waiting for! We’ve proved that our business community is stronger when we come together. But now, it’s time to grow – together. Time to take the resilience we’ve built and the creativity that’s been bottled up, and turn it into collective ACTION.

CALLING ALL SBX MEMBERS! Are you ready for a challenge that will kick start your year with creativity and captures the essence of what our business community is all about?

Sandbox Centre invites you to join the CNNX SOLVE-A-THON. We want your voice, your perspective, and your strategy to provide a solution for a local company that is currently facing exponential growth, seeking new community partnerships, and on the verge of creating hundreds of jobs for the local economy! Come together to influence their future success by getting your creative juices flowing and connecting with other SBX members – some you’ve met in previous CNNX groups and even some new faces.

how it works:

  • Share your expertise and apply your lived experiences to address business challenges
  • Attendees will have the opportunity to tackle one challenge and design a solution with tactics in breakout groups that share similar knowledge around the topic explored
  • Think to yourselves: What values need to be identified in order to inform the solutions you design and deliver? What impact could the solutions have on the community the business serves? Listen and learn from experiences in your group that could help solve challenges
  • Groups will then bring back their genius solutions, tactics, and any other areas of support they have to offer at the end of the session to fuel this local company’s path to success and growth

Imagine the impact that your group’s solution will have on our local economy if implemented successfully!


WHEN: Tuesday, January 19, 2021 – 9:00am to 11:00am (stellar idea generation cannot be rushed people!)
WHERE: Zoom! Virtually online – link will be provided upon registration
WHO SHOULD JOIN? SBX members, any CNNX group past participants, someone who cares about making a positive impact on business, someone looking to contribute their expertise to a local business in rapid growth, collaborators, innovators, and more!
WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU? Opportunity to network with other SBX members, be exposed to new connections and resources, share your expertise and experiences to support a local up and coming business, be a part of lifting the business community up and more!

*Registrants who like to be extra prepared will be provided the company’s top three challenges in the confirmation email along with meeting access details*

Meet the company: Ewee inc.

Meet Nick & Shelum – two entrepreneurs who are leading in the telecommunications space and can’t help themselves from starting new businesses and ventures when they see an opportunity. This has led them from being a scrappy start-up to a national leader, to building another start-up, repeat. These guys move fast and their growth is moving even faster!

Why SBX is a fan of Nick & Shelum – they care about the community and lead with loyalty, optimism, value, and ethics. Keeping relations strong that have been built with their partners and clients is of utmost importance. While they take pride in serving the community, we know our community can relate to the values they bring to the table and can take pride in lifting them up as they move forward on their entrepreneurial journey.
