The co-founder and CEO of GoodGut, Mariona Serra, was honoured with the Fidem 2018 award for innovation at a gala held on 29 November in CaixaFòrum Barcelona. Serra received the award from the Catalan Minister of the Presidency, Elsa Artadi, who took part in the event alongside the Minister of Enterprise and Knowledge, Àngels Chacón.
For the last 21 years, the International Foundation for Women Entrepreneurs (Fidem) has through this award recognised successes and initiatives by women who, through good management of their businesses, contribute to economic and social development. “These women are pioneers in their speciality and will become a reference for future generations” explained Joana Amat, president of Fidem.
“I was delighted to receive this recognition as women are well represented within GoodGut, not only in management but also the scientific team. It was a very exciting award. It is important to continue to raise the profile of women in the world of business and entrepreneurship” said Mariona Serra.
Fidem also recognised the talent of seven other businesswomen, entrepreneurs and executives: Therese Jamaa, General Manager of GSMA Mobile World Capital; Angie Rosales, director of Pallapupas; Inka Guixà, Chief Executive of La Farga; Àngels Roqueta, founding partner of Compas Private Equity; Aina Juliol, CEO of PGI Engineering; Emília Vila, co-founder and CEO of Agroptima, and Mireia Banega, founder of Eya Bach.
