What the Judges said:

Janine has created a unique business that positively challenges a very male dominated sector and has created a platform to empower other women. To have overcome such personal challenges and to have achieved so much so early on as a new business can only be admired. We are confident that her ambition will most definitely continue to drive the business forward, create a need to recruit other women and be an outstanding role model to others
