TEL AVIV, Israel, April 6, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Eco Wave Power Global AB (publ) (Nasdaq: WAVE) ("Eco Wave Power" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that Inna Braverman, Founder and CEO of Eco Wave Power, won the prestigious award for women who achieved a scientific or high-tech related breakthrough, by the Israeli Manufacturers Association ("IMA") and Israel High-Tech Association ("IHA").
The award ceremony took place during the Women CEO Summit at the Israeli Stock Exchange, with 300 leading women from the Israeli hi-tech industry in attendance.
Michal Herzog, the wife of Israeli President Isaac Herzog, opened the Summit, saying: "We know that in order to live in a diverse, fair and flourishing society, we need women to be present in every conference room; that around any decision-making table, we will have women with strong opinions, voicing such opinions; and that women's presence in the hi-tech sector and its leadership, will become obvious for all of us. We believe that the small number of women in the hi-tech industry is not derived from lack of talent, but from lack of opportunities. We are not asking for shortcuts but demand an equal opportunity."
According to IMA and IHA, Inna was chosen as the recipient of the award due to her significant contribution to the Israeli high-tech industry, for her extensive activity and many years of leadership excellence filled with accomplishments, and for her contribution to Israeli society as a whole.
"I am very grateful for receiving this prestigious honor. Being a young woman in the energy field and developing an innovative wave energy technology has not always been an easy road, but your support and moments like this are what makes it all worthwhile," said Braverman, who founded Eco Wave Power in 2011 and has taken the company from a startup to a NASDAQ-listed company. "Thank you for supporting Eco Wave Power's mission of changing the world, one wave at a time. I always say that passion is the greatest renewable energy source, and it is even stronger than the power of the waves. Keep believing!"
