Support Nova Scotia’s women in business:




“The program allowed me to not only learn more about building my business and the struggles of being a woman in this field but also be able to connect with other women, have open and honest conversations and brainstorm together how to fix problems we were experiencing, together. Grow Now gave me the support system of women that is needed in this field, and I will be forever grateful for the experience and the network I have created because of it.

“Connecting with the Grow Now program as a new female tech founder, has been key to our business success as an early stage start-up.  Not only did I learn invaluable skills in strategic finance, HR, and internal processes, I also benefitted hugely from the support of my fellow cohort founders. Not to mention the responsive support and great opportunities provided by the Grow Now lead and diverse team of advisors.  It’s not overstating to say that the Grow Now program contributed directly to the increased growth we saw in 2022. I’m very grateful for the program and the ongoing support provided as a Grow Now Alumni!”
