Puja Misra the person behind ‘Zoom Into Life Photography’ is among the Top 23 finalists selected for The Mompreneur® Awards.
Anticipation is building as recognition of this award in Canada’s entrepreneurial and business communities grows. Each year a select group of women make it through the nomination process and move forth to the final stages; this year over 1,200 women were nominated or registered online at themompreneur.com/award, and 205 entrants advanced.
After accumulating points based on support from over 90,000 public voters and 30,000 supporters, as well as impression ratings from a selection committee, the finalists were narrowed down.
The task of determining who will win one of the four Awards being presented at this year’s 2018 National Mompreneurs® Conference will now be left up to an expert panel of judges.
The winner will be chosen based on a select set of criteria for each award including: track record of success; product innovation of business idea; growth potential and scalability; revenue; inspiration to others; and impact on the community.
‘Zoom Into Life Photography’ conceived by Puja Misra, is a premium boutique photography studio specializing in beauty makeovers, personal branding and headshots with a mission to empower women in the community and making them feel beautiful both inside and out. It also works in a way by empowering them with confidence which helps them in their personal and professional lives.
She decided to specialize in women’s portraiture through her own personal journey where she realized many women did not feel beautiful or good about themselves and shied away from the camera. She chose to change this perception and launched her business.
Finalists will be scrutinized by an expert panel of respected judges, based on criteria such as innovation, commitment to community, sales growth, leadership, and scalability, in 4 award categories: Mompreneur Award of Excellence (exemplary product/service), Mompreneur Startup Award (for a business under 3 years), Mompreneur Award of Merit (for a consultant or franchisee), and the Mompreneurs “Momentum” Award (for a female-led non-profit, charity, or service-based business).
The 2018 Mompreneur® Awards presented by TruShield Insurance is timed to coincide with International Women’s Day. – CINEWS
