Skritswap is proud to announce that Melissa Kargiannakis, founder and CEO has been named a recipient for the 2019 RBC Canadian Women Entrepreneur Awards for the Ones to Watch Award.
The RBC Canadian Women Entrepreneur Awards are the pre-eminent national business awards recognizing the country’s leading female entrepreneurs. Now in its 27th year, the program is an initiative of Women of Influence, an award-winning organization dedicated to advancing Canadian women.
From a pool of thousands of nominees, 23 finalists from coast to coast have been selected to represent seven award categories. The Ones to Watch Award is dedicated to a female entrepreneur who demonstrates incredible potential through her innovative ideas, keen business sense and solid plans for future profitable growth.
The award is open to those who have been in business more than one but fewer than three years. Melissa Kargiannakis is one of five Recipients being recognized in this category.
Skritswap replaces complex jargon with plain, easy-to-understand language. Imagine a mortgage at a grade 6 reading level. Or an employment agreement at a grade 8 reading level.
Skritswap is a Silicon Valley VC funded artificial intelligence start-up that simplifies your content at the click of a button. It helps communications/marketing and customer success leads at banks and insurance companies to improve customer satisfaction while saving money and time.
Results with a current customer showed: 30 per cent cheaper, 50 per cent faster, and 70 per cent clearer content than just their staff trying to simplify content without Skritswap.
“I am absolutely delighted to win the Ones to Watch Award. What an honour to be recognized like this after just over a year and a half full-time on Skritswap.” Says Kargiannakis. “This award is the result of many years, different experiences/jobs, and countless people who have shaped me into the leader I am. I love the award’s title for its prophetic message: there’s only more to come – keep watching.”
The winners will be announced and celebrated at the 27th Annual Awards Gala on Wednesday, Nov. 20, 2019, at the Fairmont Royal York in Toronto.
