The Women Presidents’ Organization (WPO) describes itself as a nonprofit membership organization for women presidents of multi million dollar privately held companies. Members include presidents, CEOs, and managing directors of businesses around the world. The WPO’s main goal is to further the advancement and acceptance of women entrepreneurs across all industries. Renogy’s CEO and founder, Dr. Yi Li, is a member of this exclusive organization. On May 5th, 2017, the WPO in partnership with American Express released the 10th annual list of the 50 Fastest Growing Women-Owned/Led Companies. This year, Renogy placed 25th out of 50 on the Fastest Growing list, a first for our company.
On May 5th, all 50 award recipients were honored at a ceremony in Orlando, Florida. The average age of award recipients was 50 and an amazing 98% of the companies provide health insurance to their employees. Each of the businesses are unique, and none provide exactly the same products or services. Of the first three award recipients, one was a fitness company, while the other two businesses provide IT services. Honorees came from around the world to attend this event and Dr. Li flew in from Ontario, CA, where Renogy is headquartered. Overall, it was an honor to attend this event.
