We're in person at Bayview Yards Invest Ottawa the morning of Friday, December 9th from 10-11:30 a.m. – join us for casual networking, snacks, soft play and meet others who are investing in themselves alongside their loved ones.

The theme is 'Ask + Receive Feedback' and tickets are on sale until then but space is limited. We will be talking about pitching, business resources, current funding and financing opportunities and of course, parenthood. ⬇️


FEEDBACK from our last meetup in October:

"Thank you Amy Lynch for creating this space for entrepreneurs with young children – it is sorely needed and beats playgroup any day!"
