McGill Dobson Cup 2019:

The McGill Dobson Cup hosted by the McGill Dobson Center for Entrepreneurship is the university’s flagship start up competition that enables emerging former McGill students-entrepreneurs to compete for over CA$150,000 in prize money. Four tracks are competing, Innovation Driven Enterprise, Small & Medium Enterprise, Social Enterprise, Health and Sciences. This year, 85 women pitched out of a total of 308 participants and competition doesn’t keep them from reaching the finals (finals March 27th). Being one of the semi-finals judges was an honor!


Some schools and universities are actively pushing and promoting women in business. I was very proud by attending and speaking at the National Women In Business Conference organized by McGill’s DWIB (Dessautels Women in Business). A team of fourteen young ladies organized workshops, panels and keynotes. Were covered marketing, finance, entrepreneurship, law, tech and consulting. A very unique experience and an outstanding organization.
