MOMpreneur of the Year Award

Mompreneurs are kind of like royalty around Savvy HQ. We like to watch them. We notice where they go and what they do. We want to meet them and we love to support them. Maybe we're a little bit biased, but the challenge of successfully building a business from the ground up while you're also trying to bring baby up is not to be underestimated.

So we're proud to present the winner of the MOMpreneur Award of Excellence and our Top 10 Canadian Mompreneurs of 2013.

We're proud to crown Jade Barr, founder of Jady Babys, maker of soft-soled boots for babies, Canada's top mompreneur. She wins over $30,000 in cash and prizes designed to take her business to the next level.

Congratulations to Jade and the other top 10 finalists who worked diligently at gathering votes -- and to all the 275 nominees of the award for your unique ideas, your courage to start something on your own and for the hard work you have put into your businesses.
