Help us empower women-founded-businesses
The Stacy’s Rise Project™ is a program committed to empowering and supporting women entrepreneurs on their paths to establishing a successful business through funding, mentorship, and community. At Stacy’s, our mission is to #HelpWomenRiseCA.
Since 2017 in the US, Stacy’s Pita Chips has connected thousands of women with each other and provided nearly $1,000,000 in funding, in addition to resources and mentoring to elevate the leaders that help our communities thrive. The Stacy’s Rise Project™ was launched in the U.S in 2019 and has since supported over 50 women founders and provided over $450,000 (USD) in grants. This is the first year the program has expanded to Canada in the brand’s effort to support women entrepreneurs across North America.
There are approximately 1.1 million women entrepreneurs in Canada1, but many of these women face barriers to proper funding and mentorship, which limits professional growth.
