Last Year's Winners
You don’t have to look hard to figure out who the movers and the shakers are when it comes to business in Niagara. There is some serious talent here. In 2018, four Niagara 1Awards winners came out on top and took home $100,000 in cash and in-kind, specialized services.
Congratulations to the winners – your talents are unique and your dedication to the Niagara community is wonderful to see.
Hamill Machine Company develops products for wine, beer and food sectors for international customers and Hometown Ice Cream crafts all natural ice cream treats in downtown St. Catharines. Rooted in Niagara, Thorpe Concepts delivers hand-crafted kitchens and cabinetry and Stathletes is a St. Catharines-based sports analytics company with a focus on hockey.
