Mathtoons director joins group of elite tech entrepreneurs

The director of the Kelowna technology company Mathtoons Media, Kristin Garn, has been selected as one of Canada’s top 20 emerging female tech entrepreneurs.

She has been invited to participate in the TechWomen 2013 program, run by the Canadian Consulate in San Francisco and intended to help accelerate the growth of Canada’s most promising women-run companies.

The program combines professional and business development opportunities with local industry experts, investors and strategic partners through networking events including a reception hosted by Cassie Doyle, Consul General of Canada.

“I’m excited by this opportunity to meet more Canadian women in technology and to expand Mathtoons products and business into the U.S.,” said Garn.

TechWomen 2013 participants will be paired with mentors from leading companies in Silicon Valley and will receive training and skills in their specific area of expertise as well as professional guidance and support.

“It’s an impressive group of women to be included among,” said Garn

“I think it’s amazing to have an Okanagan technology company represented in this program.”

Mathtoons is an educational technology company that creates digital teaching and learning tools designed specifically for today’s tech savvy learners.
