DoorDash Canada Unveils New Made by Women Platform

The Made by Women platform will provide fifteen $10,000 grants to Women-Owned Restaurants in Canada

Today, DoorDash Canada announced the launch of Made by Women, a new platform dedicated to championing women chefs and restaurateurs, amplifying their voices and contributions. The Made by Women program will offer access to marketing, educational and financial resources women-owned restaurants need to succeed, grow, and make an impact. To kick off the program, DoorDash is launching the Made by Women Grant program, in partnership with Monday Girl, which will provide fifteen $10,000 grants to Canadian women-owned restaurants.

The grant program aims to provide funding to support the growth of women-owned restaurants in Canada. Both new and existing DoorDash partners are invited to apply. Only 17% of Canadian small and medium-sized restaurants are female-owned; DoorDash and Monday Girl are committed to cultivating an environment where these businesses can flourish. Women-owned restaurants can learn more about the Made by Women Grant program and apply from March 8 to April 15, 2024 by clicking here.

“As a female leader, I am proud of the ongoing commitment at DoorDash to amplifying female voices and providing funding for women-owned businesses,” says Shilpa Arora, General Manager of DoorDash Canada. “This program aims to empower women across Canada and make a tangible impact and empower local economies. With DoorDash's dedication to supporting female entrepreneurs and leaders, we aim to create lasting change and opportunities for women in the restaurant industry.”

“Monday Girl is so proud to be a part of the Made by Women Grants initiative with DoorDash!” says Rachel Wong, Co-founder of Monday Girl. “As a female-founded business, we are driven to empower female entrepreneurs to achieve success. We are so excited to be able to provide the resources to help promote successful businesses for women-owned restaurants in Canada. As Toronto natives, this partnership with DoorDash Canada is very near and dear to our hearts!”

"Today's launch of Made by Women is incredibly rewarding. It's been inspiring to see this initiative come to life and connect with merchants, knowing the impact it will have on their businesses and communities,” said Martine English, Senior Merchant Brand Manager of DoorDash Canada. “At DoorDash Canada, we're proud to be a force for good and champion women chefs and restaurateurs, empowering them to make a lasting difference in the industry."

The Made By Women program is an extension of DoorDash’s ongoing Entrepreneurship & Access program, which helps level the playing field for entrepreneurs and increase opportunities for businesses owned by immigrants, people of colour and women. The educational and marketing support of the program will become available later in 2024. DoorDash partners that are women-owned businesses can sign up to be self-identified within the app and gain access to the resources of the Made by Women program.
