Best Immigrant Entrepreneur

Please tell us your personal story and about your business. How you started, and how you have overcome challenges.

I am Manasi, the face behind Blooming Works. Born and raised in India, I moved to Canada in 2009. Now I live with my family in beautiful North Vancouver, we love to call home! In 2015, I left my full-time position as a web developer with a local credit union. I strived for better work-life balance and although I was juggling work and home, I wasn’t happy. I wanted the option to set my own hours, so I can have adequate time for my family when they needed me. It was a difficult decision, but it turned out to be the right one. For a year after that, I worked part-time as a web designer for one of Vancouver’s top marketing agency, before starting my own web design company - Blooming Works. While there are challenges as an immigrant-woman entrepreneur, I am also amazed at all the resources (including Small Business BC) available to help newcomers succeed. The City of North Vancouver library was wonderful in helping identify opportunities for new business owners and improve my networking skills - which eventually helped me get the first few projects. From banking to taxation, I relied a lot on doing my own research and connecting online / in-person with other local entrepreneurs for guidance. While starting a business can feel overwhelming, it’s perhaps never been easier than now to undertake that journey.

Why do you deserve to win the Best Immigrant Entrepreneur award?

As new Canadians, we have tried to build our business on the values that we have experienced over the last 10 years. This is reflected in our willingness to adapt, to be open to new ideas, to treat everyone with equality and respect and above all be ethical in all our dealings. These qualities have helped us become valuable members of our community - and winning this award will give us a platform to inspire many other newcomers to undertake this journey. Having had this opportunity to establish our life in Canada - we feel blessed, and like winners already.
