Mylène Cusson and Marie Hélène David are both accountants by trade and co-founders of the Quebec-based Kanevas company. Founded in 2017, Kanevas is a web platform allowing users to personalize their handbag according to their unique tastes and needs. Since their official launch, Cusson and David have successfully knocked off a series of wins, including tripling their sales within the first two years and landing a distribution agreement with major footwear and accessories retailer Jean-Paul Fortin. Cusson and David’s exclusive Women of Influence collection features five leading women fashion bloggers’ original creations. In May 2017, the two entrepreneurs were awarded the Young Enterprise Grant of more than $50,000 from Quebec’s Young Chamber of Commerce.
