All great stories start with “it was a dark and stormy night”, and this one is no exception.
It was November of 2014, and our Founder, Lianne Kim had posted in a local Facebook mom group that she was looking for other local moms who had a business and wanted to get together over a glass of wine. That first night, seven women came out in a snowstorm to chat about business and family and life. By the end of that evening they had laid the foundation for what would eventually become Mamas & Co.
In the first few years, our community centered around our in-person events in the Toronto area. However, we quickly realized that in order to make a bigger impact and help more mamapreneurs, we would need to create opportunities for our mamas to connect and learn online.
In the spring of 2016, we built the first Mamas & Co. website and in 2017 we incorporated.
Today the Mamas & Co. experience is comprised of online business classes from top experts, virtual networking nights and in-person networking nights, two very powerful conferences each year and of course our very active, supportive online member forum (our private Facebook group).
Every year we attract hundreds of mamapreneurs across Canada and beyond. Some are in their first few years of business, while others are further a long in their journey. While our community has evolved over time, one thing remains the same; our commitment to providing a judgment-free space where women can learn and grow.
