Helcim CEO and Founder Nicolas Beique named the EY Entrepreneur Of The YearTM 2018 Prairies in the Technology category. The Entrepreneur Of The Year Prairies Awards Gala brought together 47 entrepreneurs who were finalists across all categories to recognize their achievements and contributions to the entrepreneurial community.
“I want to say thank you to our clients who put their faith in us, we are always tirelessly working to create a better payment experience for you, so you can grow your business,” says Beique of Helcim’s clients who have helped him grow the company.
He recognized the contributions of the Helcim Team stating that “Being an entrepreneur is a team effort, while we might be the ones staying at night thinking of all the things that can go wrong, and all the things we want to do, it’s our team that helps us realize that vision and we’ve built an amazing team at Helcim and we’re just getting started.”
Beique founded Helcim over ten years ago with the desire to provide a better payment experience to small businesses with better pricing and friendly, local customer service. Today the company has over 40 team members and serves over 6,000 customers.
Helcim is a testament to the type of technology companies that can thrive in Calgary. The company is proud to be headquartered in the city and to be one of its leading voices as it continues to position itself as a technology hub.
Beique believes that Calgary has all the attributes that an entrepreneur looking to build a successful business needs in a city, including a low cost of living, a skilled workforce, and the overall quality of life offered in the city. Helcim strongly believes that Calgary is well positioned to be the next big tech city in Canada and will continue to add value and create more opportunity for the city.
