“Be the change you wish to see in the world.”  ~  Mahatma Gandhi

I believe there needs to be a global mindset shift on all issues pertaining to women.  And as it is the change I wish to see in the world, it is what I strive to do with  The She-Ecosystem platform.

Industry: Entrepreneurship

14 Mar 2018

"Startup Canada is Canada’s Entrepreneurs’ Organization”, Victoria tells me.  It is a grassroots network for building Canada’s entrepreneurship environment, its local culture, and to see Canada succeed by supporting entrepreneurs and their missions.  It was founded in May 2012.

Industry: Technology, Apps, Women Empowerment

08 Aug 2017

Meet: Aisha Addo 
How long since founding/running your business? Founded in 2016. Yet to Launch. Expected launch late 2017.

Mission of your firm: A ride sharing platform designed to provide an alternative transportation service specifically for women by women.

Why the entrepreneurial path? Entrepreneurship was something I sort of fell into. It wasn't always my plan but I recognized a need and basically provided a solution to it. The path of entrepreneurship is a long winded one. Often times it comes with uncertainty but it's always rewarding when you stick through. Still learning what it means to be an entrepreneur, to be honest.  

Lesson(s) learned? Believe in your vision enough to fight for it. Nothing good ever comes easy. 

Advice? Be patient with yourself, trust your process and do not give up no matter what happens. 

Fun/interesting fact about you within your industry/career?  I am a woman running a business for women in a male dominated industry. It doesn't get any interesting than that :D 

Anything else you’d like to add?  Stay true to yourself. No matter the outcome, You matter more than anything else.
