TORONTO - Yesterday, the Canadian Youth Business Foundation (CYBF) announced that Vivian Prokop, chief executive officer, has once again been awarded the Trailblazer and Trendsetter award among Canada's Most Powerful Women: Top 100(TM) by the Women's Executive Network (WXN).

The Canada's Most Powerful Woman: Top 100 Awards is Canada's most recognizable Award for the country's highest achieving female leaders in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors. Ms. Prokop was first awarded the title in 2010, a year in which she hosted the world's inaugural G20 Young Entrepreneur Summit and founded the G20 Young Entrepreneurs' Alliance.

"As CEO of the Canadian Youth Business Foundation, Vivian truly has forged a path where there was no trail," says John Risley, Chairman, Clearwater Fine Foods and Canadian Youth Business Foundation. "As Canada's preeminent champion of youth entrepreneurship, Vivian has led CYBF to grow tenfold, now helping to launch a new Canadian business every 14 hours around the clock. Her visionary leadership has strengthened Canada's entrepreneurial ecosystem, has begun to cultivate our next generation of business leaders and moved forward economic development, growth and prosperity from coast to coast to coast."

"We are thrilled to recognize this year's extraordinary group of Top 100 Winners, honouring leadership talent from coast to coast," said Pamela Jeffery, Founder, Women's Executive Network. "Our Top 100 Winners form an amazing community of high-achieving women who are inspirations to Canada's next generation of leaders."
