To celebrate the talented business advisors who partner with us to bring feasibility studies, business plans, and organizational design to our cooperative start-up founders, we’re starting a Business Advisor Profile Series. You can read about some of these outstanding professionals below.
Cathy Edwards is a business consultant, serial entrepreneur, and community builder from Saskatchewan. Her professional career is as broad as it is deep, and we love having her join us on a project.
Originally achieving an accounting degree, Edwards later earned a law degree and eventually moved on to real estate development. From there, she has played a role in a variety of startups and ventures, even co-founding a non-profit cooperative that offers youth retreats for young girls.
“I think all of those things mesh together really well in the sense that I’ve got a really strong professional foundation and have been able to use that to apply to startups and figure out what is the right recipe for success, both in my personal endeavours and with the groups that I consult with,” Edwards said.
