Scootaround Inc., North America's leading mobility enhancement provider, is opening new avenues of opportunity thanks to WEConnect Canada, a corporate-led organization that provides Canada’s premier certification program for women business owners.
WEConnect Canada is proud to deliver WEConnect International certification to Scootaround Inc., and other Canadian women's business enterprises that are at least 51% owned, managed and controlled by one or more women. This third party verification process makes it easier for corporations to find women's business enterprises. WEConnect Canada's relationship with WEConnect International helps to ensure that these businesses are included in corporate sourcing events inside and outside of Canada.
“Since starting Scootaround in 1997 as a home-based business, we have grown into a company providing scooter and wheelchair rentals to thousands of customers, event attendees, and business travelers each year," says Lee Meagher, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Scootaround Inc. "Gaining WEConnect International Certification will help us make new contacts and open doors for continued growth and success in the international market."
Through internationally recognized standards, WEConnect Canada certifies businesses that are at least 51% owned, managed and controlled by women and connects them with the growing corporate and public sector demand for diverse suppliers. “That’s good not only for women, but for corporations and governments that can now easily source untapped and innovative new vendors,” says Betty Wood, WEConnect Canada’s Lead Strategist Women Business Enterprises.
