AquaMobile has now grown to 1500 instructors operating across Canada and in 25 states in the U.S, and has been profiled in Forbes, Inc., Huffington Post and Techvibes to name just a few, and had also pitched on CBC’s Dragon’s Den. Diana has won a number of business awards including Emerging Entrepreneur of the Year, and the $100,000 Small Business Challenge.
