Ojibway entrepreneur creates product for daughter, now it's in 400 stores

 

January 16, 2017



Women supporting women — that is the idea behind SheEO, a venture capital business that has women investors supporting women entrepreneurs.

SheEO launched in 2015 and called for 500 female "activators" to invest a thousand dollars each to create a pool of capital of $500,000. That money was given as zero interest loans to five women for their business ideas. Right now, 25 SheEO participants are in the semi-finals phase for the next round of funding.

One of those participants is Patrice Mousseau, an Ojibway from Fort William First Nation, Ont., now living in Vancouver.
