We’re pleased to announce a new addition to Startup Communities: Mixing Babies and Business! As a social impact movement and community, Mixing Babies and Business™ is focused on producing parent-friendly professional development, digital resources, and inclusive and flexible work solutions for primary caregivers.
A word from our new Community Leader
“People who become parents are still interested in pursuing business ideas and using professional development to invest in themselves. But it can be difficult to feel like you belong in a startup or traditional corporate environment, if you’re the only one bringing your kid(s) along with you. I am thrilled Startup Canada has asked me to join their platform through their Startup Communities program to help grow my community and connect individuals, who are entrepreneurs AND parents, with child-friendly business resources and experiences,” says Amy Lynch, Founder and Community Leader at Mixing Babies And Business™. “This partnership will help us continue to spread the message and reach other people who believe parenthood and professional development don’t have to be mutually exclusive.”
