Connor Curran - Local Laundry Apparel in Calgary, AB
Born to Irish-immigrants, entrepreneurship has been in Connor's blood since he was a young child running through his parent's Irish Pub in Downtown Calgary. Always looking for the next big adventure, Connor started Local Laundry Apparel while studying for his MBA in Sweden. He wanted a way to represent the city and communities from where he was from, to highlight the best parts of those communities and help give back to local causes and charities. He wanted to see if he could make apparel that could build community. Supporting all things local, Connor runs networking events for budding entrepreneurs called Beers and Better Ideas as well as a networking event for established small business owners and startups called Local Startup & Beers. Addicted to meeting new people and with a bad habit for crazy ideas, in Connor's spare time he can be found training for marathons or belting out on his guitar.
