On October 2, 2015, FrontFundr’s Chief Growth Officer, Jill Earthy, won Startup Canada’s Award for Entrepreneur Promotion in B.C.  This award honours Jill’s outstanding contribution to the advancement of entrepreneurship in Canada and B.C.

Upon completion of her MBA at UVic, Jill went on to grow two successful businesses, learning countless lessons of entrepreneurship along the way. Her time in the startup world led her to spend the next eight years leading not-for-profits that focus on supporting entrepreneurs.

The Startup Canada awards celebrate outstanding achievement in Canadian entrepreneurship, and nominees are shortlisted by a panel, which includes investor Brett Wilson, of Dragon’s Den fame. According to Startup Canada’s website, this particular award goes to “individual mentors, educators, investors, startup community leaders and media who demonstrate excellence in advancing Canadian entrepreneurship through their leadership, innovation, and impact.”

FrontFundr is proud to celebrate Jill, who has served as a dedicated resource to create opportunities for countless entrepreneurs through financing, mentorship and education. We are thrilled to have her as our newest team member, continuing to pursue her passion of helping entrepreneurs succeed in her role as FrontFundr’s Chief Growth Officer.
