2014 Mompreneur of the Year Finalist

Mompreneur Award of Excellence
2014 award finalist SmAfter the 106-day voting period, I am pleased to announce that SwaggerTag was named a Finalist for the 2014 Mompreneur of the Year Award on Monday, March 3rd, 2014. The program started on November 17, 2013 and by the end date of March 2nd, 2014, there was much jostling and nail-biting right to the finish. It was set-up specifically to keep all the nominees and their supporters guessing, and it certainly did! In the end, 10 finalists were taken from the top voted, and two more were selected as “Wild Cards” by the judges.

The 12 Finalists will be reviewed by the judges: Maria Locker, CEO, Mompreneur Showcase Group; Jane Bradley, Group Vice-President and Publisher, ParentsCanada Group; Erica Ehm, Creator, Publisher, Yummy Mummy Club; Amy Ballon & Danielle Botterell, Co-Founders, Authors, Spark Consulting, MOM Inc.; Julie Cole, Co-Founder & Vice-President, Mabel’s Labels; and Sharon Vinderine, Founder & CEO, PTPA Media

The 2014 Grand Prize includes Over $30,000 in Cash & Business Services. Last year, SwaggerTag came in Second Place, so there’s only one way I’ll be able to move up. Wish my luck!

Canada’s Mompreneur of the Year

The demure Jade Barr, of Jady Babys took first place at the 2013 MomPreneur Award of Excellence Conference & Gala, winning the title of “Canada’s Mompreneur of the Year”, along with $5,000 in cash and $25,000 in business services. With backorders for her handmade, soft-soled infant boots right up until August, it’s well-deserved. Jade works from the basement of her home in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, but can now plan for much bigger things. Congrats, Jade!

SwaggerTag awarded First Runner-Up

MomPreneur Award of ExcellenceI’m pleased to say that SwaggerTag and I came in Second Place (whoo-hoo!!!), and was presented with a gift certificate from Vintage Hotels for an 2-day stay at one of their 3 Niagara-on-the-Lake properties. It’s been a great ride, and I’m looking forward to becoming more active with the Toronto Mompreneur group, and staying connected to the many amazing women I met through this process and the Conference & Gala event.

Mompreneur Award of Excellence, 3rd PlaceSecond Runner-Up was earned by Janet Skolka of Jilly Bo Billy of Nelson, British Columbia.
