These Canadian women are leading the most promising businesses

As you may have been aware, our founder and president, Joelle Faulkner, was among five Canadian women welcomed into the Winning Women class of 2018 as presented by EY.

The EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women™ program not only classifies female entrepreneurs who have shown great potential to scale, but works to further their growth and assists them in making these steps.

“I’ve seen firsthand how valuable this program is to opening doors to women who are already on their way, and helping them find the capital, resources and mentors to propel them further”, shares Tiki Cheung, EY Partner and Canadian EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women program leader.

“I’m honoured to be chosen for the Entrepreneurial Winning Women North America Class of 2018,” says Joelle Faulkner. “The program has produced and fostered some incredible female entrepreneurs and leaders, and I am really looking forward to taking what I learn alongside these accomplished women back to better support Canada’s farmers.”

“I ended up with this idea of a true partnership that injects capital into the farm to enable growth while maintaining the land base control with the farmer,” Faulkner says. “The farmer still owns the portion of land he or she can afford, and any profit and capital appreciation that is created by the partnership is shared equitably by the farmer and the investor.”
