In a statement, the company said:
Launched in 2003, the Top 100 Awards celebrate the incredible accomplishments of Canada’s top female executive talent, their organizations and their networks. Sue Abu-Hakima will receive the Sun Life Trailblazers and Trendsetters award for being an innovator and one of the rare women in technology who is both a Founder and CEO, and who has exited one start-up and is working on her second. Sue has 30 International patents in technology in AI, messaging and security. She has set an example as a tech Founder/CEO for 16 years and has had a strong impact on women entrepreneurs while contributing to non-profit boards for 28 years. Sue will be honoured during a gala celebration at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre on November 26th.
Sue Abu-Hakima co-founded Amika Mobile, joining as CEO in 2007, and has had a profound impact by leading the company through its development and launch of new, innovative products, which have recently garnered top awards in the public safety and security industry. She also drives partnerships and customer acquisition for Amika Mobile, successfully signing marquee customers such as CBSA in Canada and the Albany VA Hospital in the US, amongst many others.
As a proud supporter of women in leadership and technology, Amika Mobile works to create the necessary conditions and opportunities for women to help them thrive and succeed within high tech by setting a strong example for women in business.
“Receiving the Top 100 Trailblazer and Trendsetters award from the WXN is a great honour for me and I am hoping to continue to set a strong example for young women who have so many more opportunities to thrive in today’s rapidly changing technology world on the web, in social media, in security or with mobile apps. It is far easier to get something going today than it was 16 years ago and I am hoping to continue to help inspire and mentor young people starting up.” said Sue Abu-Hakima, CEO Amika Mobile.
