With so many missing and murdered Indigenous women in Canada, Alexandra grew tired of waiting for the system to change. In response she launched Sarjesa, a socially focused tea company, supporting local violence prevention programming for women through the sale of high quality loose leaf tea. $2.00 from each box of tea is donated to shelters in the region that support women in crisis. Alexandra's passion and determination empowers Canadians to have the ability to induce change through everyday actions and purchases. Ormhel Manuel | Co-Founder | Carberri  It’s hard to deny the pains of buying and selling a used car.
After gaining an in-depth understanding of the challenges, Abby and Ormhel launched Carberri. Their online platform makes buying or selling a great car simple, fast and fun. They ensure a safe and efficient process by handling inspections, vehicle prep, and delivery. Buyers pay less and sellers get more—that win-win combination is what they like to call a sweeter solution.Abby and Ormhel pitched their venture and walked away with $30,000 in cash and services during the JMH $70,000 LaunchPad Pitch Competition.
