Sponsored by The Scotiabank Women Initiative™ and Powered by Visa Canada

TORONTO, Sept. 23, 2020 /CNW/ - The second annual Canada's Total Mom Pitch presented by The Total Mom Show is expanding its reach across Canada. Sponsored by The Scotiabank Women Initiative™ and powered by Visa Canada, The Total Mom Pitch is Canada's exclusive pitch competition encouraging mom entrepreneurs to follow their dreams and launch their passion projects. Following an extensive application process from September 23 to November 12, 2020, the top five moms selected will compete for the Grand Prize of $10,000 in non-repayable cash and $20,000 in essential business services.

As children go back to school, moms are facing difficult decisions around balancing life and business. What started as a local event to help passionate, entrepreneurial moms in Toronto, has turned into a national initiative to empower, support and help women across the country build and launch successful businesses.

Canadian moms can submit their business online via thetotalmomshow.ca/total-mom-pitch. A select group of successful entrepreneurs & business executives will select the top five strongest applications for the voting round.

"It's helping ambitious moms across Canada by networking with powerful women, asking for recommendations, and getting valuable support when we need it most," says Anna Sinclair, CEO & Founder of the Total Mom Show Inc., which produces the Pitch initiative. "It was a no brainer to partner with The Scotiabank Women Initiative and Visa, both leading the industry with action to ensure women entrepreneurs have access to powerful resources."

The top five finalists will be announced on Friday, December 11, 2020, at 11:11am EST, kicking off the official start of the three-month-long Accelerator Program. The Accelerator will offer private mentorship with some of Canada's hottest incubators and receive special programming from organizations including Google, DMZ, EDC, Rebel Office, Henry Business Law, Buckley & Associates, Sinclair Creative Agency Inc, Shopify and more.

The Total Mom Pitch finale will be hosted on March 15, 2021 where the top five will compete for the grand prize in front of a panel of exclusive judges. Additionally, the top five will receive a membership with The Canadian Women's Chamber of Commerce and the Women's Executive Network.
