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.
