65 new people joined our product waitlist as well as our customer-centric newsletter. We participated in three different open houses held by NEXT Canada, DMZ, and Science Discover Zone (a campus-linked incubator at Toronto Metropolitan University) over the past two months. We had the chance to talk with women about our product and not only increase our brand awareness but also got them to subscribe to our customer-centric newsletter as well as our product waitlist and this is just the beginning!
We expanded the team to 10 people and we are very excited about it! By utilizing different wage subsidiary programs to entirely pay our new hires, we expanded the team, and are increasing the speed of business/product growth, while sustaining our cash in the bank.
Parnian was selected by NEXT Canada staff to be the recipient of the 2022 EY Women in Tech Award. This award was selected by the leadership team at NEXT in recognition of a high-potential female entrepreneur, building businesses within the tech community and supporting their peers.
It was an honour to be a part of the NEXT 36 program and learn a variety of topics from one of the most experienced/talented groups of mentors and professors. Our time at NEXT was definitely a very special and exciting period and we're deeply sad that it has come to an end but we're very grateful to have been given the opportunity to learn from the brightest individuals as well as increase our experience.
