The Stacy’s Rise Project has expanded into Canada. Applications opened yesterday and close October 28. Four recipients will receive a $15,000 CA grant and access to a mentorship opportunity with PepsiCo Foods Canada and Frito-Lay leadership.
“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% of VC funding so we know there is more to be done,” said Jess Spaulding, Chief Marketing Officer of PepsiCo Foods Canada.
