I wanted to express my deepest gratitude for having arranged the Canadian Women's Network Launch Week. You are truly making a huge impact in the life of Canadian Entrepreneurs, and I am glad to say that I am one of them.

Because of this event, I came to California for the first time in my life. Until last week, I was seeing the Valley as unapproachable at this time, considering the current early stage of Optimal Efficiency. After an incredible week rich in invaluable experiences, I have to thank you and your team. I am now back in Vancouver with a totally new perspective about the Bay Area: A place of tremendous collaboration and support.

My week in the valley is unforgettable. Many thanks for your tremendous initiative!"
