WineCollective founder listed on Avenue Top 40 Under 40

Each year, Avenue Magazine recognizes 40 Calgarians under 40 for their accomplishments as educators, artists, innovators and entrepreneurs. We are very happy and proud to announce that WineCollective’s very own founder, David Gluzman, has made the cut for the 2014 year!


As President of WineCollective, and BlackSquare, David has “revolutionized how wine is sold online around the world.”

In 2009, David started WineCollective out of his home, fulfilling the wine experience using paper cutters and spreadsheets. Soon after, David realized that wine specific technology was needed to support the growth of the beloved wine club, and developed the Blackboxx platform.

Today, WineCollective ships “two Orca transport trucks” of wine every month to our members across Canada, and Blackboxx is used by wineries in Canada, Australia and Europe for their own wine clubs.


Since 2007, David has also co-run DemoCamp Calgary, where new entrepreneurs show off their fresh ideas, technologies and software to receive feedback and assistance from others.

From the non-stop attention and care to WineCollective and BlackSquare, David is a respected member of the wine and technology industries. On behalf of the WineCollective and BlackSquare staff, as well as our wine club members, Congratulations David!
