Building an emerging growth business in today’s competitive business environment takes determination, focus and a broad skillset to navigate the roadblocks along the path to success. At Osler, our Emerging and High Growth Companies practice understand the challenges professionals in this sector face in the race to be the first and the best. Our team members are passionate about entrepreneurship and the growth of early-stage ventures. They have insights into how to ensure long-term success and have helped many leaders in this area of business reach their goals.
To help foster greater knowledge to the broader tech ecosystem, Osler has been offering its Women in Emerging and High Growth Companies Leadership Series.
Available live and on-demand, each one-hour session will feature inspirational women leaders from the Canadian Emerging and High Growth community sharing their stories of success, the challenges encountered along the way and lessons learned from their careers.
On Wednesday, September 14, the third session in our women-focused series, featured Shelley Kuipers, Co-Founder, and Co-CEO at The51, Helena Kaylin, Founder and CEO of MINDD Bra and Chloe Smith, Co-Founder and CEO of Mercator AI. They're joined by Andrea Whyte, a partner in our Corporate Group, who discussed how these founders are driving innovation and developing new technologies while running their companies in ever changing economic times. The discussion touched on how they find new sources of funding; changing distribution methods; manufacturing shifts and having to deal with layoffs/re-hires.
This discussion, and subsequent ones to follow in this series, will provide a unique opportunity to gain the perspective of those leading in EHG companies today, and learn more about their strategies for success.
