Inc.’s fifth annual Female Founders 100 list highlights entrepreneurs with world-changing companies
Chicago, Illinois September 27, 2022 – Inc.today announced its fifth annual Female Founders 100 list, honoring a bold group of 100 women whose innovations and ideas are shaping the world into a better place. Collectively, the 2022 honorees’ companies are estimated to be worth more than $22 billion.
The founders cross all industries and bring with them unique stories of success from each stage of the entrepreneurial journey — from startup to going public, being acquired by big buyers, or spending decades at the helm of an organization. They are reinventing everything from shoes to food and are challenging issues like financial literacy and reproductive health.
“To be recognized among the ranks of today’s leading female entrepreneurs at this time in our nation’s history is a profound honor for me. The ability to grow and thrive during a pandemic has not been an easy journey for any woman on this list. This honor speaks to our resilience and power of the female spirit as well as the outstanding teams that stand with us. I am deeply thankful for all the hard work and dedication of each and every person at OnShore who helped me achieve this great honor”, said Valarie King-Bailey, CEO of OnShore Technology Group.
“As an Independent Validation and Verification (IV&V) firm, OnShore’s mission is to help life sciences companies master their validation processes driving greater efficiency and compliance. Our innovative Enterprise Validation Management and Quality platform, ValidationMaster™ is the first Lean Validation solution helping companies speed new products to market faster while saving both time and money”, Valarie continued.
Each year, Inc. editors review thousands of applications highlighting female founders who are challenging the status quo and tackling some of the world’s biggest problems. The list features women who have overcome challenges and lifted those around them, while leading impactful organizations across the country. They join the ranks of previous honorees including Jessica Alba, Tracee Ellis Ross, Rihanna, and Shonda Rhimes.
“These 100 female founders have identified solutions to difficult problems and created valuable, industry-changing companies out of them. We congratulate this year’s list on their achievements and look forward to their continued success,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk.
