A Richmond woman has been named a finalist for the eighth annual Mompreneur Awards.
Lyndsay Scott is one of five finalists from across Canada for the Mompreneur Start-Up Award to be announced at the national conference and awards show March 27 and 28 in Toronto.
Scott’s Culture Kefir Co. produces great tasting, low-sugar probiotic water kefir infused with organic fruits and herbs. The line is made from all organic ingredients with traditional fermentation methods to achieve a delicious beverage that will support great gut health. Water kefir offers a tasty and diverse alternative to kombucha and dairy-based probiotic products. Culture Kefir Co.’s superfood infused flavours create an all-natural rainbow of bright delicious flavours and colours.
In all, 26 women have been selected finalists for five prestigious awards paying tribute to exceptional female business leaders who advocate and inspire the next generation of female entrepreneurs. The top prize is valued at over $30,000 in cash and business services designated to drive the winners’ companies forward to further success.
Inspired by new lifestyle norms and the desire to take charge of their economic livelihoods and career options, more women than ever are empowered to create their own business while juggling new, scale-up, established or export-ready business with the demands of their families.
Nominations began in October and closed Dec. 8. Over 1,200 women were nominated, and 136 entrants advanced. After accumulating points based on support from over 20,000 public voters within one week, as well as impression ratings from a selection committee, the finalists were narrowed down.
The final 26 Mompreneurs will be evaluated by an expert panel of respected judges including Erica Ehm, CEO of Ehm & Co. and publisher of YMC; Julie Cole, co-founder of Mabel’s Labels and a media personality and digital Influencer; and tech-maven Amber MacArthur, best-selling author and president of AmberMac Media. Judging will be based on criteria such as innovation, commitment to community, sales growth, leadership, and scalability.
