Santa Rosa, Calif. – November 12, 2012 – ATIV Software’s Silke Fleischer was named a winner of a Bronze Stevie® Award in the “Female Entrepreneur of the Year – Business Products” category in the 9th annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business. Fleischer is one of the few female CEOs leading a successful high-tech startup in the competitive mobile app industry.

Silke Fleischer co-founded ATIV Software and published the sophisticated EventPilot conference app which received the GOLD Stevie® Award in 2012 American Business Awards℠. In addition to starting a rapid growth company in the male dominated mobile app development world, she implemented a completely remote business structure to keep the company footprint small while offering employees the greatest flexibility in working from anywhere in the world.
