The Team

Darryl Stewart, Accelerator Chair

Darryl owns IBEX Payroll and has been a mentor in the entrepreneur community of Winnipeg for years. He is the past President of the Winnipeg chapter of EO.

He joined EO in 2001. He says he felt like he was Richard Branson because he had three businesses running and was working 80 hours a week to combat the issues in each. Darryl just had his first child and didn't have a lot of time to notice that. He didn't have any friends or family he could talk to about his entrepreneurial struggles.

Sixteen years later, he has one thriving business and a good home life. Darryl did the hard work himself to get where he is, but EO gave him a network of people to learn from and hundreds of learning opportunities. In his own words, "I owe EO big time".
