Inna Braverman, founder and CEO of Israeli clean-energy company Eco Wave Power, is the only Israeli on the 11th annual Fast Company list of Most Creative People in Business honoring 74 women and men from such companies as Netflix and Google.

Braverman cofounded Eco Wave Power in 2011 at the age of 24. Its wave energy generation technology is installed in Israel and Gibraltar, and next will be introduced in Portugal. She led the public listing of Eco Wave Power on Nasdaq Stockholm, thereby becoming the first Israeli company to list on this exchange.

“I am honored to be included in such an impressive list of creative individuals, and it is incredibly gratifying to see Eco Wave Power recognized for the pioneering work that we are doing,” said Braverman.
