CALGARY, Sept. 18, 2014 /CNW/ - Jodi Scarlett, President of ProStar Cleaning & Restoration Inc. "ProStar" of Calgary was ranked 50th for the 16th annual W100 ranking of Canada's Top Female Entrepreneurs, produced by PROFIT, Canadian Business and Chatelaine. Ranking Canada's Top Female Entrepreneurs on a composite score based on the size, growth rate and profitability of their businesses, the W100 profiles the country's most successful female business owners. Published in the October issue of Canadian Business, the November issue of Chatelaine and online at PROFITguide.com and chatelaine.com, the W100 is Canada's largest annual celebration of entrepreneurial achievement by women.
"I am proud to be recognized amongst this distinguished group of female entrepreneurs," says Jodi. "I strive to be a role model for not only young women, like my daughter, but also the next generation of budding female entrepreneurs."
This year's W100 represent the absolute best of Canada's business community," said James Cowan, Editor-in-chief of Canadian Business and PROFIT. "Female entrepreneurs are too often stereotyped as 'mompreneurs' pursuing part-time hobby businesses. But the W100 demonstrate just how vital they are to driving innovation and growth in the Canadian economy."
Canada's Top 100 Female Entrepreneurs operate in a huge array of industries and represent emerging female leaders in the business community. "I'm often asked if being a female entrepreneur is difficult," says Jodi, "and I often respond with from quote by Sheryl Sandberg's book, Lean In 'In the future, there will be no female leaders. There will just be leaders.'"
