Stephany believes that we can change the world with a new business model that is more responsible, socially involved and innovative. She learned about the challenges of aging through her family's care of her grandparents. "I felt a lot of empathy but didn't know how to help in a concrete way."

It was Eugeria's social mission and concrete solutions that appealed to her. "In Canada, the needs related to improving the quality of life of our seniors are pressing, it is a remarkable mission that Eugeria has.
