SECHELT, BC, Dec. 4, 2013 /CNW/ - EY announced the 12 winners of its
2013 class of Entrepreneurial Winning Women, a competition and
executive leadership program that identifies a select group of
high-potential women entrepreneurs whose businesses show real potential
to scale - and then helps them do it.
This year's group of Entrepreneurial Winning Women represents businesses
with services that range from personalized medicine to jet aircraft
charters to cyber security. From the Jersey Shore to California and up
to British Columbia, this year's diverse class represents some of the
best and brightest women in business today. Together, the 12 Winning
Women have an average of $7.8 million in yearly sales, 42 employees,
and seven years in business.
The first two Canadian winners, since the program inception in 2008,
were included in the class of 2013. Corin Mullins, CEO, Holy Crap Cereal and Kelsey Ramsden, President, Belvedere Place Development.
"EY has opened up a wonderful opportunity with this program for women of
all ages and experiences. Just to be recognized by EY is humbling and
to be among these self-made women is truly amazing. Thank you EY for
the wonderful knowledge that I will take home with me to move my
company to the next level. A toast to new friends, old friends and
everlasting friendships from the Entrepreneurial Winning Women of 2013
that I will value forever," says Corin Mullins.

Holy Crap Cereal is the world's most amazing breakfast cereal. The
handmade, certified organic, non-genetically modified, allergen-free
cereal line was born in 2009 from the desire for a great-tasting cereal
safe for people with food allergies. Now, Holy Crap Cereal products are
sold in over 2,500 stores and are favorites of athletes, diabetics,
celiacs, dieters and even astronauts, who brought the cereal with them
to the International Space Station.
The 12 members of the Entrepreneurial Winning Women Class of 2013
received an all-expense paid trip to this year's EY Strategic Growth
Forum® 2013, an invitation-only gathering of more than 2,300
high-growth, market-leading company CEOs held last week in Palm
Springs, California. The Forum presents a one-of-a-kind platform for
Entrepreneurial Winning Women to introduce their companies and share
their corporate and personal brands with a community of EY Entrepreneur
Of The Year™ winners, top executives, prospective investors and
business advisors. All 2013 Entrepreneurial Winning Women were honored
at a special celebratory luncheon during the Forum.
Launched in 2008, the program is intended to help women entrepreneurs
break through the barriers that keep thriving second-stage businesses
from scaling to their full potential. Once selected, the entrepreneurs
participate in an ongoing, customized program designed by EY to
catalyze their companies' growth by building and fostering critical
relationships, enhancing leadership skills, expanding business know-how
and providing increased visibility. They are coached on the five
crucial leaps they need to scale up their business:
Thinking big and being bold;
Building a public profile;
Working on the business, rather than in it;
Finding and establishing the right networks;
Evaluating financing for expansion.
