Betty Bedregal entered the 2012 Silicon Valley StartUp Cup Business Model Competition with a dream. Within 7 months, Betty’s tenacity and fortitude enabled her to create Betty’s Butterflies Day Care. Betty’s Butterflies is a bilingual, multicultural day care center that employs the Healthy Roots program and Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” program to focus on raising healthy children. These programs teach children to apply activity and balanced nutrition to their home and school lives for an overall improvement in lifestyle and confidence.
