Startup Canada Recognizes Co-Founder of Thriving, Fast-Growing Canadian Startup

KITCHENER, Ontario – June 21, 2018 – DOZR, North America’s trusted marketplace for the online rental of heavy equipment, today announced Co-Founder and COO, Erin Stephenson, has won the Ontario regional award for the Startup Canada Woman Entrepreneur of the Year. This award is presented to women entrepreneurs who have impacted Canadian entrepreneurship through exemplary activities and leadership of their companies.

When I was a little girl I believed that I could do anything I set my mind to. I started DOZR to change the construction industry for the better, using technology to do so. Seeing examples of successful women before me became a beacon that helped me channel the ambition I once had as a child and propel me forward to take a risk. I am humbled and honoured to join the ranks of the incredible and fearless women before me, and act as a beacon for the next wave of women entrepreneurs.

— ERIN STEPHENSON

Erin is quickly emerging as a strong female leader and trailblazer within the Canadian tech sector. A strong role model for women in the startup industry, Erin welcomes the challenge of working within technology and construction, two industries dominated by men. She has become a valuable mentor for earlier-stage female founders and women in the tech industry. She is pushing DOZR forward as the company works to merge artificial intelligence with construction insights.

“DOZR is a proud Communitech success story – which began when they entered some of our early stage programs, got accepted into our Rev accelerator, and culminated with a $100,000 Rev Demo Day win,” said Heather Galt, VP of Startup Programs at Communitech. “Since then, Erin has continued to grow the company, including 298% revenue growth last year.”

The Startup Canada Awards are the hallmark event celebrating outstanding achievement in Canada’s entrepreneurship and innovation community. “Erin Stephenson embodies the very essence of Canadian entrepreneurship and is a role model for the future,” said Victoria Lennox, CEO of Startup Canada. “Breaking new ground and leading by example, Erin has built ‘the Airbnb of bulldozers and excavators,’ as North America’s trusted and leading marketplace for heavy equipment rentals, using the latest technology. We are proud to celebrate Erin’s business excellence and impact on the entrepreneurship community.”
