Langley, British Columbia (October 1, 2014) – Female owned businesses are one of the fastest growing sectors of the Canadian economy – and while their potential is great, the opportunity to support them is even greater. To help do this, GroYourBiz™ has teamed up with KPMG in Canada to help women entrepreneurs develop professionally and expand their business.

“All businesses, no matter their size, face similar issues: cost control, marketing, human resource struggles, business succession, and increased competition to name a few,” said Barbara Mowat, President, GroYourBiz™. “Welcoming KPMG in Canada as a sponsor is sure to set our members up for even greater success with their diversified industry knowledge and business advice.”

Like GroYourBiz™, KPMG in Canada is not only committed to developing female leaders within its organization, but also female entrepreneurs in the communities in which it operates. As GroYourBiz’s newest sponsor, KPMG in Canada will join the GroYourBiz™ advisory board and leverage its extensive global experience with entrepreneurs to support GroYourBiz™ in its efforts to help Canadian female entrepreneurs succeed here at home and abroad.

“Joining the GroYourBiz™ family as a sponsor and as a member of the advisory board gives our people the opportunity to share their experiences and insights with entrepreneurial and growing businesses,” said Don Matthew, Partner and National Industry Leader – Industrial Manufacturing for KPMG in Canada. “We recognize the importance of working with female leaders and look forward to providing these entrepreneurs with the tools and support they need to make their businesses better in a meaningful way.”
