Who they are
Over the past 5 years, the Mompreneurs® group has grown to be a Canada-wide ‘movement’ which has developed into multiple team members and chapter locations across the country; a non-profit arm in partnership with the Federal Government of Canada and Coca-Cola Canada; a national Award Series and Conference, and a quarterly magazine. As sole owner of the trademarked word ‘mompreneur’ in Canada, the organization now has a membership and online community of over 17,000 members and subscribers within Canada and the U.S, a social media community over 80,000 strong, and a team that extends through Ontario, Alberta, and British Columbia.
They have been thrilled with the development of Mompreneurs® Momentum Enterprise of Canada (Momentum), a new not-for-profit organization that complements the Mompreneurs® network to further provide educational resources, content, and opportunities for current and future members.
Momentum is the first Canadian organization to take part in Coca-Cola’s 5by20 program, a worldwide initiative dedicated to supporting the economic empowerment of 5 million women entrepreneurs across the globe by the year 2020. With the support of Coca-Cola Canada, Momentum will be helping to provide educational support for economic empowerment to 10,000 Canadian women entrepreneurs by the end of 2016, with a goal to continue supporting women leading to the program's closing in 2020.
