SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--RippleNami, Inc., a provider of a blockchain map-based data visualization platform accessed via the cloud, has been named the gold winner in the Most Socially Responsible Company of the Year category in Best in Biz Awards 2017 International, the only independent global business awards program judged each year by prominent editors and reporters from top-tier publications from around the world.
RippleNami is quickly affecting change in developing nations by connecting unconnected populations with an innovative blockchain and mapping solution that allows anyone to map their world. RippleNami created a visible and secure way for people to resolve a myriad of problems involving data veracity, document control, big data management, property protection, and identity management through an incorruptible network. RippleNami knew that if they could take the technology solution into developing countries, the world would forever be changed.
“As a rapidly growing, fast-paced startup technology company with a strong focus on corporate social responsibility, RippleNami is quickly impacting the lives of many by making a difference in the way people connect using our novel blockchain and mapping solution. We genuinely appreciate that the judges in the Best in Biz award program recognized the power of the change RippleNami’s innovative solution is affecting and noticed the Company’s successes to date,” explained Jaye Connolly-Labelle, president and chief executive officer at RippleNami.
Almost 300 public and private companies hailing from all sectors of the global economy from more than 30 countries competed in Best in Biz Awards’ fifth annual International program. Best in Biz Awards 2017 International honors were once again presented in a range of categories, including Fastest-Growing Company of the Year, Most Socially Responsible Company of the Year, Most Innovative Company of the Year, Support Department of the Year, Executive of the Year, Most Innovative Product, Enterprise Product and Consumer Product of the Year.
Winners in the 5th annual program were determined based on scoring from an independent panel of judges hailing from a wide spectrum of top-tier publications and media outlets and from 15 countries and all continents. Best in Biz Awards’ uniqueness stems, in part, from the composition of its judging panels. Each year, only editors, writers and contributors to business, consumer, financial, trade and technology publications, as well as broadcast outlets and analyst firms, are invited to serve as judges. Structured this way, Best in Biz Awards can best leverage the expertise, experience and objectivity of its influential judges to determine award winners.
“More than twenty years after the internet became a must-have tool and medium for businesses, it’s fascinating to see how leading firms, as encapsulated by this strong crop of Best in Biz Awards contenders, demonstrate how far we’ve come,” said Mathew Schwartz, judging his fourth Best in Biz Awards competition. “I was especially struck by how strong the cloud computing segment continues to be — not just apps but also infrastructure — and how even with the best technology in the world, user interface design and the user experience remains so crucial.”
This year’s judging panel included writers and contributors to such publications as ARD (Germany), Business Breakfast (United Arab Emirates), Computer Hoy (Spain), Data Breach Today (United Kingdom), HT Mobile (Israel), IAA Magazine (United Arab Emirates), InBusiness (Cyprus and Greece), Irish Independent (Ireland), Radio Ngati Porou (New Zealand), TechHim (India), TechnoFILE.com (Canada), Tune Media (Singapore), Ventures Africa (Nigeria), and Wirausaha & Keuangan (Indonesia).
