Making Your Mark micro-manufacturing business competition encourages entrepreneurs to compete for the chance to establish a business in the Power Inn District and be awarded a business start-up package with essential resources and tools to turn a dream into reality. Last year’s winner is here to show off his brilliant invention!
An inaugural business competition in the Power Inn District has named its winner.
Jim Heberling took the top spot in the Making Your Mark contest, organizers announced Friday. Presented by Power Inn Alliance Inc., the contest helps its winner open a business in the Power Inn District.
Through his Lifeline Lift Co. Inc., Heberling created a tool to help janitors easily dump trash cans into large dumpsters, in turn reducing injuries.
ASCIP identified a product known as the Ergonomic, Assist, Garbage, Lift and Empty (E.A.G.L.E Lift), which makes emptying trash safer and more efficient. This garbage can assisted lifting device was created to remove the need for heavy lifting while emptying garbage cans into dumpsters.
