Babies, Business + Breakfast 'How She Built It': Spring 2019 Pop-Up Event

We believe parenthood and professional development don't have to be mutually exclusive.

People have families and they want to invest in themselves. It shouldn't be an either/or situation and we are creating a community that welcomes primary caregivers AND their children to talk about business in a safe and welcoming space (coffee and croissants included!)

Join us on Wednesday, May 1st, 2019 from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Fuel up on fresh business inspiration, strong coffee and get connected to other like-minded parents.

Hear from a panel of inspiring speakers, all of whom have built successful companies – while raising their families – and want to discuss how they did it with a unique combination of ambition, creativity and resourcefulness.

They wish something like this had existed when they started out and lucky for us, they are now joining us to share their valuable lessons, personal experiences and practical business advice.

Tickets are limited! RSVP to reserve your space.

Amy Lynch with Baby: Impact Academy Participant 2018

After spending the better part of a decade as a freelance and remote worker in Australia, Ireland, and England, I returned to Canada as a new mom with a newfound motivation to address the isolation I sometimes faced as a working expat and new parent.


Determined to maintain a sense of self while looking after my little ones, I often sought out networking and professional development opportunities and was surprised by a lack of inclusive spaces with baby change facilities and parent-friendly event times.


After moving to Ottawa, I set out to make more space for ‘parentpreneurs’ looking to invest in themselves, and Babies, Business & Breakfast is the result. A pilot program for parent-friendly professional development, my initiative aims to improve parental mental health and accessibility of professional spaces across the city. 


I was selected to participate in Impact Academy in 2018, which I completed alongside my newborn son. With a growing group of newsletter subscribers and a social media following for my #BYOBaby into business settings activism, my advocacy has resulted in the first baby change table being installed at Invest Ottawa.


This event series is continuing to build support for the idea of a future in which parenthood and professional development don’t have to be mutually exclusive because I believe everyone deserves to design and create a life that works for them and their family.
