Kara Goldin, chief executive officer of San Francisco-based Hint Inc., makers of the zero-calorie, unsweetened essence water, was named one of Fortune's 2011 Most Powerful Women Entrepreneurs.

Hint experienced 100 percent growth in sales in 2010 in its core product line, and the introduction of Hint Fizz, a carbonated version, will allow for the brand to expand to a whole new customer base, according to the company. Building on its success, Hint also plans to launch new retail programs and increase distribution across the country in 2012.

Goldin is one of 10 women selected from more than 130 up-and-coming entrepreneurs across the country and will join honorees at Fortune's Most Powerful Women Summit 2011 taking place Oct. 3-5 in Laguna Niguel, Calif.

The 10 selected entrepreneurs created startups that generated $1 million to $25 million in annual revenue last year, but appear poised to become large and global businesses, Fortune editors say.

Each year, Fortune's Most Powerful Women Summit brings together well-known entrepreneurs for a three-day summit. Entrepreneurs will be able to mingle with Arianna Huffington, Tyra Banks, Tory Burch, Chelsea Handler and the summit's honorary male guest, Warren Buffet.
