Kristina Tsvetanova is among the twelve outstanding women entrepreneurs nominated for the EU Prize for Women Innovators 2017.
Kristina is the co-inventor of the award-winning innovation BLITAB® – the first tactile tablet for blind and visually Impaired people. She is the co-founder and CEO of BLITAB Technology GmbH – the World’s Most Creative Start-up for 2015 and the European Winner of Social Entrepreneurship and Disability. Thanks to the international recognition that she received in Europe, USA, Mexico, Singapore, China and Japan in the last two years, and her persistent eagerness in empowering unprivileged children via technology, she was named as one of the “Social Movers” of today by Agora+D in 2015. Watch her interview for the nominations.
The Women Innovators 2017 shortlist contains women entrepreneurs who have brought their breakthrough ideas to the market. For the first time, this year’s contest includes three finalists in a new category, the Rising Innovator, to recognise excellence in female entrepreneurs aged 30 or under. All of the finalists have founded or co-founded a successful company based on their innovative ideas.
The Award ceremony will be held on March 8, 2017 at 18.30 at the European Parliament. We hope that Kristina will become one of the three honoured entrepreneurs for her outstanding innovation.
