For this episode of the podcast, I have Devon Fiddler, founder of SheNative, with me to talk about her journey into entrepreneurship and she not only hopes to grow her business, but to empower more indigenous women to become entrepreneurs too.
Devon founded SheNative in 2014, and since then has received numerous awards such as the 2015 CBC Future 40 Under 40 designation, 2015 Start-up Canada Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award, the 2016 YWCA Women of Distinction Award Under 29 category and is a top 5 SheEO Venture of 2016.
After experiencing her own personal struggles, and seeing other issues in the indigenous community, after graduating with her B.A. in Aboriginal Public Administration from the University of Saskatchewan, Devon started her own business as a way to empower herself and other indigenous women too. Every person in her company is from the indigenous community, and the products she creates also promote messaging of positivity, confidence and pride in the community.
