In 2015, Mompreneur Showcase Group Inc. announced the development of Mompreneurs® Momentum Enterprise of Canada (Momentum), a non-profit organization that will complement the Mompreneurs® network to further provide educational resources, content, and opportunities for current and future members.
Momentum has been fortunate to have received financial support in the past from Status of Women Canada, and Coca-Cola Canada, and has used the funding to focus on educational opportunities for mompreneurs across Canada, including an enhanced web portal with information, webinars and resources for Mompreneur® Members, as well as round table discussions, webinars, meetings and workshops across Canada throughout 2016 and 2017. Offering resources, support, and guidance through educational content and actionable measures, Momentum strives to give women entrepreneurs the tools necessary to start and maintain a successful business.
Momentum is also honoured to have been the first Canadian organization to take part in the Coca-Cola 5 by 20 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 helped to provide educational support for economic empowerment to 20,000 Canadian women entrepreneurs by the end of 2017, with a goal to continue supporting women leading to the program’s closing in 2020.
”With Mompreneurs® Momentum Enterprise of Canada we are so honoured to be working with Status of Women Canada to offer education-based learning and practical curriculum at a level that is attainable for all women in business, no matter the industry or their level of experience. It opens up a world of endless opportunities.”
