About this event

On November 17th, as part of Do It In Durham and Global Entrepreneurship Week (and to celebrate in advance of Women’s Entrepreneurship Day!), Startup Grind is thrilled to present an in-depth conversation with Denise Atkinson, Founder of Tea Horse!

Join us as Melissa Cook, Program Manager at PARO chats with Denise Atkinson, Anishinaabe ikwe from the Red Rock First Nation, about her entrepreneurial journey to founding Tea Horse, an Indigenous, woman-owned artisanal tea company that produces a first-of-its-kind wild rice tea using natural Canadian wild rice (manoomin)!

With insight into the challenges and advantages of female entrepreneurship and her career path as an Indigenous innovator plus a ‘steep’ look at what makes wild rice tea unique, this Startup Grind is spilling the tea on innovation and entrepreneurship!

Presented by Spark Centre, in partnership with PARO Centre for Women's Enterprise
