Stephanie, a true Vancouverite, vowed never to be an entrepreneur, though she comes from four generations of business owners. Stephanie holds a degree in international marketing, and worked in various industries including tourism and technology, before establishing herself in a VP role with an international manufacturer headquartered Taiwan. After ten years of fast-paced Asian living, and success in developing her family business to pre-IPO stage, she returned to Vancouver in 2010 to start Granted. As a ‘grant angel’, Stephanie and her team manage the full process of obtaining grants: from research to final reconciliation.
