Inna Braverman, Founder and CEO of Eco Wave Power, Named in Fast Company’s Annual List of the Most Creative People in Business
Stockholm, Sweden, August 4, 2020 — Fast Company today announced its 11th annual list of the Most Creative People in Business, honoring an influential and diverse group of leaders from a vast range of global industries including tech, design, entertainment, healthcare, media, government, nonprofit, sports, food, and more.
Inna Braverman, the Founder and CEO of Eco Wave Power (Stock Symbol: ECOWVE) joins the 11th annual list of women and men from such companies as Netflix, Google, and Patagonia, as well as institutions such as Johns Hopkins University and the ACLU of Massachusetts.
Inna Braverman earned the recognition this year for driving the creation of Eco Wave Power at the age of 24, and for the development of the EWP innovative wave energy generation technology, which is enhancing the global wave energy research, engineering and commercialization efforts.
She is also responsible for the execution of EWP’s wave energy power stations (in Israel and Gibraltar), significantly expanding the EWP 190MW projects pipeline (including a recent Concession Agreement for up to 20MW in Portugal) and leading the public listing of Eco Wave Power on Nasdaq Stockholm, thereby becoming the first Israeli Company to list on this exchange.
Inna was previously recognized as CNN’s “Tomorrow’s Hero”, "100 makers and mavericks" by Medium.com and appeared in Wired’s list of “Females Changing the World” and the “30 most influential women of the 21st century” by MSN.COM. Most recently, she was awarded the United Nations "Global Climate Action Award" in the category of "Women for Results" and shortlisted for the prestigious EU prize for women innovators 2020, by the European Commission.
The Most Creative People in Business list recognizes individuals who used their innovative thinking to make an impact on the world beyond financial success. These engineers, executives, choreographers, activists, designers, journalists, and founders have created something new this year within their field that’s never been done before in their industries. Many achieved these societal problem-solving accomplishments in one of the most contentious and erratic times in history.
“I am honored to be included in such an impressive list of creative individuals, and it is incredibly gratifying to see Eco Wave Power recognized for the pioneering work that we are doing,” said Braverman. “Since David Leb (co-founder of Eco Wave Power) and I began this journey in 2011, our goal has always been to revolutionize the renewable energy sector. As climate change presents an increasingly urgent challenge, we need lots of creative thinking, to preserve our planet and aid the fight against climate change. Even that the path towards the development and commercialization of a novel technology is not easy, I am deeply motivated to achieve our goals. There is no better feeling than being recognized for doing work that I am passionate about and which is making – I believe, and I hope – a significant positive impact in the world. I am encouraged by the support that Eco Wave Power gained thus far, and looking forward to expanding our efforts across the globe”
Fast Company editors and writers spent a year researching candidates for the list, scouting every business sector: social good, medical, technology, engineering, marketing, entertainment, startups, and more. The people selected have all accomplished something truly innovative within the past 12 months or so that is having a measurable effect within their industries and beyond. They’re also discoveries—none has ever been profiled in Fast Company in print before. Together, they represent the future of business.
“Each year, we recognize artists and conventionally creative people making their mark on business and corporate executives deploying creativity and innovation to address some of the biggest challenges facing businesses and society,” says Stephanie Mehta, editor-in-chief of Fast Company. “Individually and collectively, the Most Creative People are an inspiration.”
