San Diego Business Journal Celebrates San Diego’s Annual Woman of the Year

San Diego, CA…December 4, 2017… RippleNami, Inc., a blockchain data visualization solution provider, is recognized for its CEO, Jaye Connolly-LaBelle, chairman and chief executive officer, as San Diego’s Business Woman of the Year. This annual awards ceremony is hosted by the San Diego Business Journal and showcases prominent business leaders making their mark in history while elevating San Diego’s stature in the global business community.

Imagine a world where all the information most important to you rests at your fingertips… a world where vast streams of data are visualized in logical and actionable fashion… and a world where anyone equipped with a mobile phone can access the powerful benefits that RippleNami’s technology is already benefiting countries such as Sierra Leone and Kenya.

RippleNami is marching towards its bold vision of connecting 5 billion unconnected people with an easy-to-use blockchain and data visualization solution that leverages the mass adoption of mobile phones. Connolly-LaBelle and Phil Gahn, founder and chief business development officer, shared a deeply held conviction that driving social impact of this magnitude would be their singular cause with a global reach while leveraging their San Diego roots. Their determination to aggressively introduce and deploy RippleNami’s proprietary technology solution into developing countries is poised to change the global landscape in unforeseen ways. First stop: why not Africa?

“Receiving this distinction from our own backyard is the very essence of what fast-growing global startups like Ripplenami can expect from the San Diego ecosystem. Through our innovative technology, RippleNami is quickly affecting change for women and children in developing countries. We thank the San Diego judges who selected RippleNami and acknowledging our fast track to foster lasting change,” said Jaye Connolly-Labelle, chairman and chief executive officer at RippleNami.
