Winnipeg, MB – StellarAlgo and the NHL’s Winnipeg Jets of True North Sports + Entertainment are proud to announce a new partnership.

“From the beginning, StellarAlgo has impressed our team with their dedication to developing a true partnership and a desire to collaborate with us to ensure Winnipeg fans have the absolute best experience possible,” said Tyler Kurz, vice president, business intelligence at True North. “We are dedicated to working with the best organizations who share our vision for transforming how we connect with our fans and our community – it only seems fitting that, as we celebrate our 10th season back in Winnipeg, and an exciting playoff run, we’re also able to announce a deal with a world-class leader in analytics and customer insights. The entire True North organization is looking forward to working closely with the StellarAlgo team to build a more digitally-sophisticated future.”
