FREELANCER OF THE YEAR: Katia Myroniuk, Ukraine
Being named one of the winners of the Entrepreneur of the Year Awards last year was pretty cool. This award proved to me that I’m moving in the right direction, and allowed me to invest in my professional career. The prize money from Payoneer helped me advance my career, and I put it toward an educational course in Vienna.
INNOVATOR OF THE YEAR: Carlo Silva, Philippines
Winning the Payoneer Entrepreneurship Awards helped my business a lot, we gained media exposure, and we also got featured in a global publication, Forbes and received international recognition. It was a pleasure taking part in the awards and being able to represent the Philippines. I highly recommend that any aspiring entrepreneurs enter as the exposure is great.
ENTREPRENEUR OF THE YEAR: Saurabh Nanda, India
Being awarded Entrepreneur of the Year was one of the most motivational and encouraging moments of my life. I have a printout of an interview featuring me after winning the contest under my office glass table, it motivates me every single day. I have yet to use the prize, but I am waiting for the right opportunity to invest back into my business.
