Three Ships, an all-natural skincare company co-founded by alumna Laura Burget (ChemE 1T6), continues to make waves in the business world as Burget and co-founder Connie Lo, were named winners of the 2020 RBC Canadian Women Entrepreneurs Awards in the Micro Business Category out of more than 8,600 nominations.
For 28 years, the RBC Canadian Women Entrepreneurs Awards has celebrated the country’s most accomplished female business leaders. Burget and Lo earned this distinction by championing the values of all-natural and affordable skincare all the while steering their company through this year’s remarkable economic headwinds.
“We are thrilled to be acknowledged in this way and feel very proud to be recognized among this extraordinary field of talented and capable businesswomen,” said Burget. “What began as a grassroots beauty business around Connie’s kitchen table has grown into something beyond our wildest imaginations. We couldn’t be more honoured to accept this award.”
