BUSINESSES that exemplify innovation and entrepreneurship were honoured in Winnipeg on Friday with the Spirit of Winnipeg awards from the Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce.

The charity category was won by Variety, the Children's Charity of Manitoba, which has raised more than $22 million in Manitoba to meet the special needs of children of all abilities.

The not-for-profit category was won by the International Institute for Sustainable Development, a Canadian-based, international public-policy research institute that's involved in harvesting and processing cattails to produce bioenergy, reduce nutrient loading to waterways, recover high-value phosphorous for fertilizer, produce carbon credits and improve habitat.

The start-up category was won by Po-MOtion Inc., which produces a software platform to easily create engaging interactive displays projected on any surface. The software they developed allows everyone from advertising agencies to teachers to create their own interactive surfaces using any projector, computer and web camera.

The small category was won by La Liberté which this year is celebrating 100 years as Western Canada's oldest French newspaper.

The medium category was won by Number TEN Architectural Group, which is an integrated practice of architecture, planning, strategic advisory services, interior design and visual communications.

Number TEN is the first architectural firm in Winnipeg to adopt 3D printing, a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital model, which helps clients visualize a design.

The large award was won by Emterra Environmental, which, in the past year, has invested more than $23 million in Winnipeg for a state-of-the-art recycling plant, featuring optical sorting technology, and Canada's largest compressed natural gas fuelling station, along with a fleet of nearly 60 CNG refuse trucks.
