Now in its fourth year, the Empact Showcase recognized Founder & CEO Nadine Hanafi as being among the United States’ “Best Companies Started & Run by Young Entrepreneurs”.
“Being honored at the United Nations and having my logo featured on the Nasdaq billboard in Times Square were major highlights in my entrepreneurial career. I am proud to be part of such an energetic group of young entrepreneurs who are each changing the world in their own way,” said Nadine Hanafi, Founder & CEO of We Are Visual.
We Are Visual is a creative agency dedicated to empowering people to turn PowerPoint into a powerful communication tool that enhances their message, by specializing in creating highly visual and engaging presentations that help their clients tell a compelling story.
Empact Showcase companies were started and are run by entrepreneurs who are age 35 and under. In 2013, the companies comprising the Empact Showcase contributed more than 10,000 jobs to the economy, and controlled over $1 billion in revenue.
Founders in the Empact Showcase were recognized last week (October 28th, 2014) for their achievements at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City. Past celebrations have taken place at the White House and United Nations.
“Young entrepreneurs are having a big impact on our economy, and it’s so powerful to have so many of these leaders in a room together,” said Sheena Lindahl, Co-Founder of the Empact Showcase. “Many of the companies are social enterprises that are also making a huge difference in people’s lives. It is never an easy road to build a successful organization, and we believe it’s important to celebrate all the spirit and grit these entrepreneurs have put into making the world a better place.”
