Karina was ranked #45 out of 100 of the country’s most successful female business owners based on the size, growth rate and profitability of their businesses. Her contribution to the company’s strategy has helped Prizm Media become the lead generation company of choice for some of the fastest growing durable medical equipment providers and mail order pharmacies in US and Canada.

 “Females have much to offer to the overall business community and support is essential to the growth of their careers and businesses.” says Karina.  “For me, being included in the elite w100 female entrepreneurs list is not only an honor, but also a responsibility to support other women in their path to success.”

A 2014 article in the Journal of Global Business and Organizational Excellence claims that nearly seven million women in North America have become entrepreneurs. In fact, women – 80% of whom are mothers – launch four out of five small to medium sized businesses. These statistics reflect just how many women are actively challenging the harmful stereotypes placed on working mothers by embracing their own values, making their own rules, and ultimately writing their own success stories as Karina has done. “SHe Accelerates” has secured a location and with furniture already on its way, the initiative is on track to launch before the new year.
