Patrice Mousseau is the founder and CEO of Satya Organic, a company that offers organic creams for skin conditions like eczema and inflammation. “I knew that the company I created was going to have more attention than profit,” said Mousseau.
With the onset of her daughter’s eczema, and a refusal to use steroid creams, Mousseau began researching natural and organic ways to treat her daughter’s condition.
Beginning in her own kitchen using a crock pot, Mousseau’s recipe has turned into a flourishing business as her products have landed on hundreds of retail shelves across Canada.
Mousseau is a member of the Fort William First Nation, and in 2017 she was the National recipient of the Startup Canada’s Indigenous Entrepreneur Award. In this week’s #StartupPodcast, host Rivers Corbett talks to Patrice about being a conscious entrepreneur, the growth of her business, and being a single mom.
