Best Early Stage Cleantech Company - Burnaby's Etalim
Best Early Stage IT Company - Victoria's Advanced E-commerce Research Systems
Forum Favorite Cleantech Company - Richmond's Nxtgen Emission Controls

Not quite a "first look" for Mingleverse though. It's their second year in a row picking up an award at the Financing Forum. Last year they won Best Early Stage IT Company.
