Kim Yuen

Business Advisor, Vancouver

As a Business Advisor, Kim Yuen is driven with a sense of purpose to help women entrepreneurs achieve their business goals. She helps women business owners overcome challenges in their entrepreneurial journey – from start-up or purchase, to growth, maturity and exit. She is thrilled to put her well-honed business expertise to work as a member of the dedicated team, helping to fuel the success of women entrepreneurs in BC.

Throughout her career, Kim has personally experienced the challenges women entrepreneurs often face. An entrepreneur herself, Kim was a loan client of WeBC when she first started her business.

Kim has worked with government agencies, public corporations, franchises, and small- to mid-sized businesses in diverse industries throughout North America. Immediately prior to joining the WeBC team, Kim served as a Business Advisor at a leading business transition advisory firm where she worked with successful business owners on enhancing the future value of their businesses and optimizing their exit strategies.

Kim’s passion for business first sparked in high school, leading her to pursue a Bachelor of Business Administration from Simon Fraser University (SFU) and a Master of Business Administration from Laurentian University. She wrote her first business plan as a summer intern at Jones Soda Co., for the company’s webstore and went on to make a career out of her passion for advising business owners, while also starting her own companies with partners and investors.

Kim lives in Burnaby with her husband, their two adventurous children, and a fun-loving rescued Shih-Tzu. She loves gathering with family and friends – especially over delicious food and drinks. Kim also enjoys travelling and taking in cultures and tastes from around the world. For balance and health, Kim practices yoga and meditation. She is a champion for mental health and emotional wellbeing. As a way to give back, Kim volunteers at and supports multiple children’s charities, including West Coast Kids Cancer Foundation.
