Our Mission Statement

Our companies motto "Palma Non Sine Pulvere" is a latin phrase meaning "No Reward Without Effort" that dates back to the time of the Gladiators. Today, that is what we are putting into you, and to be successful you will need to provide effort as well.

We offer an all in one service platform that is designed to centralize your focus and your effort. So many programs across the hockey world do not have the funding to offer full services to their players. Here at Cornucopia, we aim to provide the resources necessary for you to Elevate your hockey experience.

BRENDEN MEYER

Founder & Managing Partner

The hockey community is one of the most globally represented sports at present. As a player, Brenden would see the discrepancies of funding for player development across the US and at different levels of hockey. "All players should have the chance to access the resources needed to fulfill their hockey dreams" and that was the basis and main principle in the founding of Cornucopia Lifestyle. Brenden prides himself on being a sponge in both the world of Hockey and Business, seeing each day and every conversation as an opportunity to grow and develop along side his clientele.
