RUMSON, NJ, May 5, 2023 – OrthoNu Founder and CEO, Dr. Sima Yakoby Epstein, has captured the Gold Stevie for Best Entrepreneur in the Consumer Products, Non-Durables category for Tweakz, in the 21st Annual American Business Awards®, the premier accolades for excellence in U.S. business, honoring organizations of all sizes and industries.
“I am so honored to receive this award,” said Dr. Yakoby Epstein. “Opportunity is truly born when you identify an unmet need, and you have a passion to meet that need. I founded OrthoNu and created Tweakz because of my passion to do something impactful for patients and parents who were feeling vulnerable and stressed about inevitable and common orthodontic emergencies such as broken wires and loose brackets, and for Orthodontists as emergency visits are costly to their practice. It is very gratifying to know that we are being recognized for making a difference.”
The Stevie® Awards are the world’s premier business awards created in 2002 to honor and generate public recognition of the achievements and positive contributions of organizations and working professionals worldwide. The Stevie has become one of the world’s most coveted prizes. More than 3,700 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories.
“I don’t give out high scores, but I’m super impressed. To see a client identify a problem and ‘go to the basement’ to start to figure out a solution is the epitome of entrepreneurship. I admire you and your work.” – ABA Judge on Dr. Sima Yakoby Epstein and Tweakz.
Dr. Yakoby Epstein will be presented with her Gold Stevie Award at a special event that will be held on June 13, 2023, in New York City.
