4 winners were selected from an incredible list of 20 finalists, close to 200 nominees and 17,000 candidates from across the country. A diverse panel of Business Leaders judged the finalist entries. The winner was chosen based on a set of specific criteria including track record of success, innovation of business idea, and impact on community.
We are proud to announce that: Colleen Dyck, of GORP Clean Energy Bar from Niverville, MB won the Mompreneur of the Year Award.
GORP Clean Energy Bar is an all natural energy bar made on the family farm in the Canadian Prairies. It’s packed full of many local healthy ingredients and contains no fake sugars or preservatives. Each batch is rolled out by hand – with love. Conceived by Colleen, because she needed a convenient and healthy snack for her athletic training and for her family, she hopes that her bars inspire more than just healthy eating but to get out and have an adventure!
“I am so incredibly humbled. This event completely reaffirmed to me how important it is to keep lifting each other up, celebrating each other and not comparing ourselves to each other; instead, realizing that we are each on a different journey. The real question is, how can we be of service to each other along the way as we all journey to discover our purpose? THANK YOU to The Mompreneur Showcase Group for seeing the value of creating this platform for us to celebrate and affirm one another!” – Colleen Dyck
