Jodi Glover, CEO and co-founder of Real Tech Inc. has been named the 2012 RBC Canadian Women Entrepreneur of the Year for the TPH Sustainability Award. The 2012 RBC Canadian Women Entrepreneur Awards are presented by Women of Influence Inc. Glover’s award was presented during the 20th Annual Awards Gala, hosted by Diane Francis at the Fairmont Royal York in Toronto.

“It’s with great pride that RBC celebrates the achievements of these extraordinary business women,” says Andrea Bolder, executive vice president, Business Financial Services, RBC. Over 3,500 women entrepreneurs were nominated for the awards, highlighting the extraordinary number of accomplished, successful and influential women in Canada. Candidates were required to complete a thorough application; a prominent Canadian judging panel of business leaders reviewed all qualifying applications. Following the due diligence process carried out by Deloitte’s Private Client Services, the winners were selected by the judges.

Glover credits her success to her company’s innovative technology solutions that are helping to improve global water quality analysis. “I’m absolutely thrilled to have received this prestigious award and am so thankful to Women of Influence, RBC, Deloitte and TPH and all the other sponsors for making this award possible,” she says. “The support from my parents, husband and children contribute to my continuous inspiration and help me be the woman that I am today. Real Tech’s success is also attributed to the great team we have who make Real Tech happen everyday, our external team of advisors and supporters including our valuable customers around the world who love our products as much as we do! As we continue to grow Real Tech, I hope I can set an example to other aspiring women on how to build a sustainable business and inspire the next generations to come to think about the three Ps of business – profit, people and planet.”
