“Being a solo founder can be hard, especially in the most challenging economic circumstances. Some people feel they can’t start or build a great company because they’re going solo. Some feel pressured to find a cofounder. For me it was just the opposite: I always wanted to make my own path, feeling empowered as a solo founder. Today I’m honoured and proud to be recognized as a 2021 Bronze Stevie® Award winner in the Female Solo Entrepreneur of the Year category for Women in Business” ― Viola Palescandolo, Founder & CEO of Black Platinum Gold
