Inspiring and Empowering Women Entrepreneurs

Listen On

Women have the power to do anything they set their minds towards, and that includes running a successful business. As long as you are willing to take risks then there’s no limit on what kind of success you can achieve! The sky is not the limit for this woman with an entrepreneurial spirit.

We are chatting with Carmen Sandor, the founder and CEO of Green Owl Vodka, one of the only female-owned and led spirits sold at the LCBO. Green Owl is Ontario’s best-selling flavoured vodka and is infused with green tea extract from Japan. Carmen started her career as a reporter for CTV News and TSN. She then switched gears and started working as a portfolio manager for RPIA, a Toronto-based investment management firm and was the youngest person to be promoted to Vice President at the firm. Last May, she honed in on her financial industry expertise, her entrepreneurial spirit and her passion for clean ingredients to launch Green Owl Vodka in May 2021.

In this podcast, Carmen shared her journey transitioning from the corporate world into manufacturing beverages and her interesting perspective on diversity and inclusion tied to women in the industry.
