“Entrepreneurial Tech [ETech] Meet-up for Fernie. Kick’s off on the 31st January 2018 at The Loaf.
The basic idea for this meet-up is to meet once a month, with a speaker at the top of the evening. Discussing anything related to business, entrepreneurship and technology. This will be followed by beer and networking or visa vera!
I am going to start with a talk titled ‘The formula for success’ [by Sylvia Jenkins] and this will be followed by Jude Smith and Kyle Hamilton, owners of local start up marketing agency will give a short insight into how they dreamt up The Fernie Elf as a way to launch birr, and will explain how they took it from social media into the mainstream to an audience of millions.
This event isn’t just for tech companies but anyone who uses technology in their business, which should be any start-up or Fernie business owner, solopreneur or anyone thinking of starting something but hasn’t got it off the ground yet.
The purpose of this is to celebrate, uncover and discuss all things entrepreneurial and hopefully make new connections and learn a few things along the way. Come for the talk or turn up after to socialise with other local entrepreneurs.”

Beanpod roasts, serves and sells a Dark and Italian blend. It’s all done in their downtown Fernie shop in small batches…so it doesn’t get much fresher than that.

Loaf daily brews Kootenay Coffee for everyone to enjoy. Kootenay Coffee comes from Nelson, BC. While you’re there, you should get a pumpkin loaf to go with your coffee. Deliciousness!

Bean Around The World is brewed at Freshies from lighter brews to the darkest, slaps-you-in-your-face coffee you’ll ever taste. I couldn’t quite figure out the background of BATW but I do have fond memories of hanging out at BATW in Vancouver – so to have it in Fernie is a little heartwarming.

Oso Negro is a popular coffee company from Nelson, BC. I like the coffee and Mugshots.
Of course, you can get coffee at other locations but these are the “coffee shops” of Fernie and sometimes it’s nice to know what they’re brewing (and roasting!)
Finished up our day out with a little lunch at Loaf. High Five!
What a perfect night to go to Loaf Bakery, downtown Fernie, for dinner with the family. Phil invited us to dine at Loaf Bakery and it was a perfect night out with delicious food and live music in a place that felt like home. The night started off quiet (perfect for kids who are teething and hungry) and by the end the place was full and bustling (perfect for kids who are teething and cranky).
Everyone ordered a pizza, even though the pastas and burger of the night all sounded amazing, but I hadn’t tried their pizza yet and I heard good things. My Chicken Pesto pizza was brilliant – a great flaky, crunchy crust to go with the rich flavours of the pizza. Rod’s pizza, Pipeline, had a good kick to it and made his nose run all evening long but he was smiling at the same time. That’s a good thing.
Dessert was ordered and our beers were finished and everyone left happy and ready for bed. I love going to restaurants that make dining with children easy.
Loaf Bakery is now 5 years old! Get down/up to Loaf and grab yourself a piece of cake! I bet it’s delicious cake too.
