Snack brand Stacy’s has announced the launch of Stacy’s Rise Project in Canada as part of its ongoing efforts to support women entrepreneurs who are still experiencing a lack of resources needed to help them rise.
From September 22, 2022, until October 28, 2022, Canadian women running small businesses can apply for the Stacy’s Rise Project at www.stacysriseproject.ca. Four recipients will be selected to receive a $15,000 grant and gain access to a mentorship opportunity with PepsiCo Foods Canada and Frito-Lay leadership from across North America to help them grow their business.
“After a successful U.S. launch in 2019, we are proud to expand the Stacy’s Rise Project and start our journey in Canada where there are more than 1.1 million entrepreneurs. Across the country, women-owned businesses receive an estimated 4 per cent of VC funding so we know there is more to be done,” said Jess Spaulding, chief marketing officer of PepsiCo Foods Canada.
