Rhyze cultivates entrepreneurial spirit of women in Guelph and Wellington County
This collaborative initiative provides learning, mentorship and networking opportunities to help women build financial capital, business skills, peer networks and confidence. Rhyze is currently developing programming to support women, no matter their career path or stage.
About our Name
Rhyze is inspired by the rhizome, a root system that some plants use to grow. While the roots of most plants generally point downward, the rhizome grows horizontally underground. The rhizome sends shoots up from its nodes, growing what appear to be many separate plants. These seemingly unrelated individual plants are actually all connected through a system that’s not immediate visible to the eye. Rhizomes are resilient and determined: just like women. We know you’ll agree that this metaphor is a fitting description of the mission and vision for Rhyze.
