The Modern Earth Story

In 1999, our founder Dan Belhassen saw an opportunity to take a different approach to website design and development.  He gradually assembled a team of talented and enthusiastic individuals that had both the skill-set and the desire to do "eclipse the ordinary" in all aspects of their work - from web design, to programming, to content creation, sales and client services.  Modern Earth Inc has become the largest web design company in Manitoba, with over 700 clients in 6 countries over four continents.


The team, often referred to as "the Earthlings", has grown from three to more than a dozen people - you can meet us on the Meet The Earthlings page.  We share a passion for professional accomplishment and positive growth, guided by and contributing to Dan's ongoing vision for what a 21st Century web design company can become - a one-stop resource for individuals, businesses, associations and agencies who want a focused result-driven web presence, using both proven tools and cutting edge technologies to achieve their goals on the World Wide Web.


Dan Belhassen was recognized as business leader in 2004 when he was the recipient of the Smart Award for Entrepreneurship Smart Award for Entrepreneurship  In 2007, Dan was chosen as the Manitoba recipient of the BDC Young Entrepreneur Award at a gala awards ceremony in Winnipeg.   This Award is presented annually to highlight Canada's best and brightest young Entrepreneurs and to recognize their innovative spirit and business acumen.
