Boston, MA – WEBWIRE

solo sciences, the world’s first cryptographically-secured product authentication system, today announces co-founder and Head of Partnerships Katie Flannery has been recognized with a Silver Award for Female Executive of the Year in the 16th annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business.

The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honor female executives, entrepreneurs, employees and the global companies they run. Over 1,500 entries were submitted this year in more than 90 categories. In recognition for her leadership work with solo sciences, Flannery was awarded Silver in the Female Executive of the Year category for Business Services. 

Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of over 150 business professionals from around the world, working in eight distinct categories.  

As Co-Founder and Head of Partnerships at solo sciences, Flannery is leading the charge in creating a trustworthy marketplace for legal cannabis. She has been instrumental in defining and deploying solo sciences’ mission to protect supply chains from seed-to-sale. Alongside her team, Flannery has secured cannabis brand partnerships and is leading the charge in shipping millions of units in 2020.

“It is an honor to be recognized in the 2019 Stevie Awards for Women in Business,” said Flannery. “Together with my team at solo sciences, we are working to protect consumers from the dangerous realities of counterfeit cannabis products. As a rapidly expanding mainstream industry, legal cannabis brands and their customers are navigating a constantly changing set of challenges, authenticity and product safety are now more important than ever. To be recognized by the Stevie Awards confirms our mission of restoring consumer safety by putting information in consumers’ hands.”

The solo* app acts as a certification for cannabis brands, establishing trust by securing the supply chain. 

The patented mobile-first app-enabled platform deciphers uniquely encoded labels, removing the need for expensive packaging technologies like holograms and RFID. Unlike other authentication technologies, the solo*CODE™ can be applied to any pre-existing product without the need for packaging redesign.
