Event description

Description

Join us in March at the Westshore Women's Business Network event. WWBN is a dynamic networking group for professional women and female entrepreneurs from Southern Vancouver Island. We believe in the power of connection and offer warm, relaxed and inviting events. We meet monthly for networking events comprising keynote speakers, connection, business growth and a catered lunch.

MARCH EVENT INFO:

Peanut Butter and Dragon's Den oh my! This month we welcome Jill Van Gyn, founder of Fatso Peanut Butter in Victoria, which is taking Canada by storm. In fact she secured a deal on the Dragon's Den!

She says her journey with Fatso is not a conventional entrepreneurial path but her experiences are what enabled her to not only launch the company but drive it to be the success in two short years!

Fatso is now in over 1000 stores nation-wide and she has ambitions of entering the US market in 2020.

ABOUT THE PRODUCT:

"Fatso was developed with the elite athlete in mind, but regardless of whether you’re an athlete, I also get how tough it can be to simply start your day off right.

Fatso was designed to be the essential nut butter for the weightlifter, CrossFitter, spin enthusiast, yogi, or mountain biker but is also great for those who want to dip their toes into eating right.

Whether you are trying out a keto diet, gluten free, or vegan or just need a better peanut butter in your life, Fatso is here to save the day."

Attend and learn lessons from a successful, unconventional (her words, not ours!) entrepreneur. There are many lessons to be learned from other's paths: Jill will share

  • her entrepreneurial journey

  • how she got the business started

  • the challenges and lessons learned

  • today's success

  • and of course her vision for the future.


ABOUT YOUR SPEAKER:

Jill Van Gyn was born and raised in Victoria and returned home in 2010 after living away in Montreal and Vancouver for 10 years.

Jill launched Fatso Peanut Butter in 2016 after having difficulty finding a job in her field in the year and a half that followed graduation from grad school.

Jill’s journey to Fatso is not a conventional entrepreneurial path. Her experiences, tenacity and perseverance have enabled her to launch the company and drive its current success.

Jill lives on a farm with her family in the Blenkinsop Valley and plans on starting a small side business selling figs and making apple cider for local green grocers…if she ever finds the time.


MARCH SPONSOR:

This month's WWBN Gold Member lunch sponsor is NADINE HANCHAR from Progressive Edge Plus NLP
