Thrive Podcast - Startup Canada

Women wear many hats in today’s world, and women entrepreneurs are no exception. Despite the challenges women owned start-ups face, Maria Locker Founder of RevolutionHER, believes there is nothing stopping them from shifting and growing to accomplish what they want. 


Maria Locker is an advocate and champion for the advancement of women and female entrepreneurs across North America, and is sought as a speaker, contributor, and expert surrounding topics including economic empowerment, gender equality, lifestyle and business trends, and products that women love.


As Founder and CEO of The Mompreneurs® Organization from 2010 to 2020, Maria worked with her team across Canada to grow their community of women to over 23,000 members and subscribers, presented 750+ events, and gave back over $80,000 to the community and charitable organizations. Now, as the Founder and CEO of RevolutionHERhttps://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/12.0.0-1/72x72/2122.png" alt="™" class="wp-smiley" style="height: 1em; max-height: 1em;" />, Maria is excited to work alongside her team to bring even more support, empowerment, and inspiration to women of all ages and walks of life!


Maria is driven to lead a life of purpose and passion. Fuelled by the incredible women, family and friends she is surrounded by, and through the endless support of her husband David and children Jackson and Sofia, Maria is grateful for the many challenges and experiences life has thrown her way. She believes that battling Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and Thyroid Cancer within a year of each other in 2016/17, while in the midst of the biggest business project of her life, helped to lead her to this moment in time with clarity 


“There is always room for growth and shift, especially for women who wear so many hats. Know there is nothing stopping you from accomplishing exactly what you want.”


On this week’s THRIVE Podcast, sponsored by the Business Development Bank of Canada and Scotiabank, Maria discusses the strength of women entrepreneurs and striving for growth in your startup.
