Veronica’s Speech for the Top Women Owned Businesses Luncheon

Today was extremely exciting for us!  The Grand Rapids Business Journal has been a huge supporter of GreenCup’s work as it innovates and grows.  Today’s luncheon for the Top Women Owned Businesses — for which we were a finalist — was empowering, affirming, and quite a treat.

Each winner of the award was given five minutes to speak about their work.  Though we remain a Finalist, I feel this speech offers a rare insight into how GreenCup came into being, and should be shared. Read more

We Received An Award!

I am extremely humbled as I write this.  I was just informed that GreenCup was selected as one of the 2017 GRBJ Top Women Owned Businesses.  Several nominations were received by the GRBJ for us, and I thank each and every one of you.

Much more to come in the New Year.  Happy Holidays!  You’ve given us an amazing gift.

Veronica Sits on Aging 2.0 Panel

Aging2.0 came to Grand Rapids in September as part of the #30in30in30 global event – Thirty cities in 30 days with 30 startup pitches for products that will help our elders.  Grand Rapids was honored to be selected as one of the cities, with even greater attendance at our host venue, Start Garden, than Chicago.  My background in startup support plus my new work with the Untold Stories Project was a great fit for the panel.  What a blast!
