We are proud to announce that our Cofounder & CEO, Krista LaRiviere, has been named amongst the list of Canada’s Top Female Entrepreneurs. Krista has placed #94 in PROFIT and Canadian Business’s 18th annual list of 100.
The W100 ranking of Canada’s Top Female Entrepreneurs is Canada’s largest celebration of achievement by women business owners.
Produced by the editors of PROFIT and Canadian Business, the rankings and extended coverage of the women honoured are published in print and online. Published today, the W100 ranks female entrepreneurs using a proprietary formula that considers the size, growth rate and profitability of the businesses they own and manage. Data is verified by reviewing financial statements provided by the candidates. To qualify, candidates must be owners or significant stakeholders who at least share chief decision-making capabilities.
“The members of the 2016 W100 each possess the talent and tenacity to start and grow a successful business,” said James Cowan, Editor-in-chief of PROFIT and Canadian Business. “Their remarkable achievements serve as proof that ambitious, risk-taking female entrepreneurs are integral to the growth of the Canadian economy.”
