Siren is a finalist of the Cartier Women’s initiative award
March 4, 2019
We are excited to announce you that Siren is a finalist of the Cartier Women’s Initiative Award, alongside with 21 other finalists. The Cartier Women’s initiative award was created 13 years ago by Cartier, McKinsey & Company and INSEAD Business School. The objective is to encourage inspirational women entrepreneurs worldwide to solve contemporary global challenges.
The award aims to:
- support and recognize creative women who are making concrete contributions to finding solutions for the future of our planet.
- bring these business solutions to the largest audience possible.
Since 2006, Cartier has accompanied 198 promising female business-owners and recognized 70 laureates. More than 3000 companies around the world applied this year.
Who is Ran MA, CEO of Siren?
Ran Ma dropped out of her degrees at Northwestern and Copenhagen Business School to start Siren in early 2015. She handmade all early prototypes herself. Leading doctors wouldn’t believe it when she said she was making a smart sock that was machine-washable and -dryable and doesn’t need to be charged.
Ran Ma: “I am really excited to see Siren recognized by the Cartier Women’s foundation. I hope this recognition will inspire more women to start businesses in the Med tech-field where they are still underrepresented.”
We want to thank the Cartier Women’s initiative award for this exceptional opportunity. We are looking forward to participating in the program. We hope this occasion will help us to raise awareness about diabetes and its consequences.
