Vancouver, BC, 8 December 2008 – Imprint Plus celebrates its rise up the ranks of Canada’s leading, women-run businesses. The company today announced that it has earned position #49 on the W100, a list of Canada’s top 100 Woman Entrepreneurs. The 2008 W100 is compiled by PROFIT Magazine in recognition of the growing number of successful Canadian businesswomen and their many achievements.
2008’s W100 marks PROFIT’s 10th annual celebration of successful women in business. The W100 list showcases 100 skilled female entrepreneurs who deliver world-class products and services. “Knowing that women are the driving force behind some of this country’s most dynamic and durable businesses, we wanted to put them front and centre on the national stage”, said Ian Portsmouth, Editor & Associate Publisher at PROFIT.
The W100 table ranks the 100 biggest female-owned companies in Canada by gross revenue for 2007: the average revenue of this year’s W100 rose to $36.8 million, a 145% jump from 1999’s $15 million average. Over the past 3 years, average revenue grew 236%. 93 businesses out of this year’s W100 turned a profit.
“I am so thrilled to have moved up a spot since last year,” joked Imprint Plus CEO Marla Kott. “I look forward to PROFIT’s W100 every year. It’s an excellent gauge of the company’s progress. The Imprint Plus team is honored to be in such great company.”
