Canada's Total Mom Pitch is an annual initiative that offers powerful support and introductions to women-owned businesses looking to access capital & education to grow a business while raising a family.
It is where ambitious moms with big visions meet support personally and professionally.
#TotalMomPitch is Canada’s fastest-growing entrepreneur community for moms
We are committed to breaking down the barriers that moms are facing when growing & scaling their businesses. Join the 20,000+ other Canadian Moms who joined us and found the support they deserved through the fastest-growing professional community for mom entrepreneurs.
No one works harder than a mom period.
"When I became a mother, I felt like I was competing against entrepreneurs with more resources and fewer responsibilities. I wanted to be a mom & businesswomen but had no idea how it was even possible to do both. I never imagined this determination for owning my own business and passion for helping people would get me this far. Now, all I want to do is see other moms turn their business into a profitable & sustainable company and claim their CEO status as I did. As a 2-time immigrant and refugee who came from nothing, I now live rich in support in all areas of my life. Entrepreneurship can do that and more ". - Anna Sinclair Founder & CEO -Total Mom Inc
WHY WE EXIST
We kept hearing from moms who were overwhelmed navigating this major transition and felt like they were lacking strong systems and villages behind them to redefine their new life. From early on, new moms have a significant number of expectations that often lead to us feeling mom guilt, and shame making it challenging to go after career dreams of our own.
Total Mom Inc has been speaking to moms for 5 years and counting and if we know one thing...it's that moms love starting businesses.
We want to help them make that happen through our powerful business community and this initiative gives national recognition and support while inspiring moms to see what's possible through entrepreneurship.

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that
we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that
most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be?"
