The Top 28 finalists have been selected for the seventh instalment of The Mompreneur Awards brought to you by Mompreneur Showcase Group Inc. Year seven will be lucky for a new crop of entrants this year as the Mompreneur introduces a new award to their roster, the Mompreneur Award of Distinction, recognizing exemplary service and leadership in business. One of Canada’s most distinguished and coveted recognition awards for women entrepreneurs, the Mompreneur Awards is globally-recognized and introduces some of the fastest-growing and most innovative Canadian businesses and non-profits to the world.
This year over 1,250 women were nominated or registered online at themompreneur.com/award, and 152 entrants advanced for consideration for the awards. After accumulating points based on support from over 20,000 public voters within a week, as well as impression ratings from a selection committee, 28 finalists were selected in 5 categories.
Local Mompreneur, Dianah Warrington of Allysian Sciences has been named a finalist by her peers and the business community. The task of determining who will win one of the five Awards being presented at this year’s 2019 National Mompreneurs® Conference will now be left up to an expert panel of judges. The winner will be chosen based on a select set of criteria for each award including: track record of success; product innovation of business idea; growth potential and scalability; revenue; inspiration to others; and impact on the community.
Allysian Sciences is a Canadian company focused on maximizing human potential through Science & Education. It is “nutrition” for the Brain, the mind and for the Body. Products are distributed through the “Relationship Marketing” model with Independent Brand Affiliates each building their own businesses.
After semi-retiring from the corporate world and her stressful Government position, Dianah Warrington sought out a business opportunity to match her values, her world of anxiety, and one that fit in with her family lifestyle. Dianah became an Allysian Sciences Brand Affiliate on November 1, 2016 and immediately reaped the Health Canada approved benefits of Allysian’s flagship product “Mastermind”: 18 approved benefits to boot! Anxiety no longer ruled Dianah’s world! This product was changing lives and Dianah quickly grew a business team, more than quadrupling each year in size, sales and personal income.
Dianah says, “I am so excited and honoured for the opportunity to share my brain health products, services and my business opportunity with women across Canada and help change lives, globally, through this journey as a Mompreneur Award of Merit finalist!”
Finalists will be scrutinized by an expert panel of respected judges, based on criteria such as innovation, commitment to community, sales growth, leadership, and scalability, in five (5) award categories: Mompreneur Award of Excellence (exemplary product/service), Mompreneur Startup Award (for a business under 3 years), Mompreneur Award of Merit (for a consultant or franchisee), and the Mompreneurs “Momentum” Award (for a female-led non-profit, charity, or service-based business), and the new Mompreneur Award of Distinction (for exemplary service and leadership)
The 2019 Mompreneur Awards will be handed out at The 2019 National Mompreneurs Conference taking place over 2 days ahead of International Women’s Day Week, Friday, March 1st and Saturday March 2nd, 2019. The conference will take place at the Toronto Congress Centre.
