The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honor women executives, entrepreneurs, employees and the companies they run – worldwide. The Stevie Awards have been hailed as the world’s premier business awards.
“This is tremendous acknowledgement of RippleNami’s first-of-its-kind blockchain visualization technology. We are honored to be recognized as we roll out Africa’ first “Smart Country.” We operate with a clear understanding that data is the new currency in today’s economy,” said Jaye Connolly-LaBelle, President and Chief Executive Officer of RippleNami.
Two weeks ago, at the United Nations General Assembly, Sierra Leone’s delegation made a bold announcement to partner with RippleNami to transform Sierra Leone into Africa’s first “Smart Country.” The program accelerates progress toward achieving President Koroma’s vision for Sierra Leone to become a green, inclusive, middle-income country.
RippleNami architects the blockchain data visualization platform that empowers citizens and organizations across the nation to generate, collect, analyze and transact data while positioning Sierra Leone as Africa’s very first “Smart Country.” By leapfrogging legacy information communication technology (ICT) systems with RippleNami’s proprietary technology platform, Africa countries are finally poised to penetrate global markets, obtain economic independence, and elevate the prosperity of its people.
“Every year we say that the current crop of Stevies for Women nominations couldn’t be better, and the next year we’re proven wrong,” said Michael Gallagher, founder and president of the Stevie Awards. “The judges’ scores and comments bear witness to the fact that this year we will honor a truly remarkable class of women and women-led organizations in New York on November 17.”
More than 1,500 entries were submitted this year for consideration in more than 90 categories, including Executive of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year, Company of the Year, Startup of the Year, Women Helping Women, and Women Run Workplace of the Year.
