FREDERICTON– A Fredericton entrepreneur has been named a 2017 RBC Canadian Women Entrepreneur Award finalist.

Kara Angus, founder and president of the Go-Go Group is in the running for the RBC Momentum Award.

The RBC Canadian Women Entrepreneur Awards are national business awards recognizing the country’s leading female entrepreneurs. Now in its 25th year, the program is an initiative of Women of Influence, an award-winning organization dedicated to advancing Canadian women.

Eighteen finalists in six award categories were selected from a pool of 6,400 nominees from across the country. The RBC Momentum Award is dedicated to a female entrepreneur that has successfully capitalized on opportunities to deliver 10 percent or more growth, year-over-year for three years or more.

Through expanded management, empowered employees, and demonstrated excellence, she has created a flexible and responsive business that is able to adapt to changing market environments and leverage opportunities for continued growth. Angus is the award’s only finalist in Eastern Canada.

“I’m thrilled to be selected as a finalist for this award,” said Angus in a release. “It’s an honour to represent Atlantic Canada and women entrepreneurs on the national stage.”

The winners will be announced and celebrated at the 25th Annual Awards Gala, hosted by Diane Francis, editor-at-large for the Financial Post, on Wednesday, November 22, 2017 at the Fairmont Royal York in Toronto.
