She is among 16 finalists chosen from hundreds of entries to represent entrepreneurs aged 16 to 52 whose businesses range from promising start ups to multi-million pound organisations.
Karen has been chosen as a finalist in the Athena category for a woman running a business aged 36 to 49.
She and the other finalists have been hand-picked as role models for future generations due to their ambition and resolve.
The awards were judged by some of Britain’s best known business owners including Chrissie Rucker MBE (The White Company), Cath Kidston MBE, Amanda Wakeley OBE and Sharon Hilditch MBE (Crystal Clear).
Speaking about the finalists, everywoman co-founder Maxine Benson MBE comments, “Britain’s economy has come through challenging times and is now recognised as one of the strongest in Europe. This year’s finalists have steered their businesses through rough waters, and are poised to reap the benefits of the burgeoning conditions, recognising as they do the long term opportunity for enterprise. These Awards are an opportunity to celebrate the finalists’ meteoric success.”
