It’s with great excitement that we officially announce this new collaboration with the organic energy drink company to feature extraordinary people who build and craft amazing things.

Last year, GURU Energy drink went on a mission to discover and portray inspiring makers. The smart and creative individuals or companies who put so much good energy into their project that in turn, inspire our whole community to do better things. This last adventure gave way to uplifting encounters and rich conversations with people of talent which we have closely followed since.

Obviously, a lot happened since the first series of articles was released! We have watched illustrator Gabrielle Laïla Tittley launch her decorative prints online store. We’ve witnessed Meubles de Gaspé (formerly Tuyaux & Co) evolve into an established custom-made furniture company while our favorite barber Simon Chercuitte, managed to open several new locations in partnership with Frank & Oak. Oh, and Busbud raised millions of dollars in funding and expanded their offices. Not that all this is any of our fault, but we are simply grateful that our paths crossed at some point, and that we were able to capture the essence of their passion and entrepreneurship. You can catch up with all of the previous stories here.

This new series will be both featured on GURU Energy Drink website and TOWER TRIP Magazine.

We are therefore now calling for all makers and entrepreneurs to submit their projects here. If you have friends or colleagues who inspire you in the course of their journey, please share this article with them. Together, let’s find who will be the next Montreal makers and shakers.

GURU and us will try our to leverage our brand’s clout, social media channels and newsletters to help promote these local talents. This is their humble way of giving back to a community that has supported them for the last 20 years. So tell us, what is it that you do?
