Vancouver, BC (March 16th, 2018) - Ted Fleming’s CBC’s Dragons’ Den appearance has landed him in the lap of success upon wrapping up his pitch for an investment in his growing Partake Brewing company. Fleming won over the at least one of the discerning Dragons by offering up a full glass of his carefully curated craft IPA to taste. This new influx of capital will help towards growing Partake Brewing globally and will allow for the development of various new styles of beer, including a craft lager.

Partake’s Dragon deal was secured with Manjit Minhas for $300,000 - for no less than 50 percent of the company - after she praised the IPA she sampled for having just the right bitterness along with beautiful body and colour.

“This deal is such an exciting next step in the evolution of Partake,” said Ted Fleming, founder and CEO, Partake Brewing. “After being diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease I decided to eliminate alcohol from my diet but really missed beer. While there were non-alcoholic options available, the quality and variety were just not the same as their alcoholic counterparts, so it became my mission to remedy the situation. Partake was the end result and the team at Durham College played a vital role in helping to refine our recipe.”

Development of Partake’s IPA recipe began in October 2016 in collaboration with Durham College and its Office of Research Services, Innovation and Entrepreneurship (ORSIE). Funded through a $25,000 Engage grant from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council, and using its brew lab and line, ORSIE researchers worked with the company to develop Partake’s IPA recipe, resulting in a made-in-Canada craft beer that has no alcoholic content yet retains a true beer taste.

TORONTO – March 5, 2018 – The Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) and Chase Merchant Services (Chase) announced today they have reached an agreement to further support Canadian small business. CFIB members will benefit from exclusive rates on American Express (Amex) transactions.  


“This new deal is a big step forward for small business and recognizes their importance to the Canadian economy,” said Dan Kelly, President and CEO of CFIB. “Many of our members could see significant savings with the new offer, for some this could represent a rate reduction of almost 50 per cent. This will benefit CFIB members by lowering the cost of offering Amex as a payment option, while ultimately providing value to consumers with greater access and payment choice.” 


As part of a decade-long commitment to lowering credit card fees for small business, CFIB continues to build partnerships to benefit small business and recognize the importance of its membership. In fact, CFIB members collectively process over $12 billion annually in electronic payments through Chase.


“Chase is excited to partner with CFIB to help support the growth of Canadian small business,” said Rob Cameron, President, Chase Merchant Services in Canada. “Our partnership highlights the value of CFIB’s 110,000 members and recognizes their collective strength.”


Chase shares CFIB’s commitment to small business across Canada. As a result of this partnership, members receive outstanding rates on all Chase transactions. 


“We are excited to see Chase and CFIB partner to bring American Express acceptance to more small merchants,” said Kerri-Ann Santaguida, Vice-President & General Manager, Merchant Services, American Express Canada. “This is part of our ongoing commitment to the small business community, designed to make it easier for them to do business with us by enabling acquirers like Chase to provide payment processing, servicing and pricing to small merchants.”


The new CFIB special rate with Chase is available to businesses with less than $500,000 in Amex transactions. The deal is aimed at making it easier for small businesses to accept its payment cards. In addition to lower transaction fees, CFIB members will benefit from:

  • Improved cash flow: Amex transactions delivered through Chase will be processed more quickly, allowing member merchants to receive next-day payment in most cases. 
  • Reduced administration time: Member merchants will be able to find all of their transaction information, including Amex, in one statement from Chase.
