BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Dec. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- With just over one year of operations, Genexa has been named Startup of the Year by the Best in Biz Awards, the only independent business awards program judged each year by prominent editors and reporters from top-tier publications in North America. Genexa received the award for unmatched innovation and success in the over-the-counter medicine industry. Genexa's mission is to provide the healthiest, USDA Certified Organic medicines on the market, with the purest ingredients, free of synthetic chemicals, allergens, GMOs, artificial fillers and toxins.
This honor recognizes the many accomplishments Genexa has achieved in the last year. Within the last year their products went from zero shelves to more than 15,000 retail stores including CVS, Bed Bath & Beyond, GNC, Vitamin Shoppe and more. Genexa is currently on track to outpace industry standards set by other natural product and supplement startups. Other successes include patenting not one but five different innovative proprietary technologies, doubling staff size and launching into international markets including China.
"Amazing variety in the finalists in Best in Biz Awards this year," said Christopher Null, author on Wired, who judged the awards for his sixth year. "It was incredibly difficult to pick a winner!"
Each year, Best in Biz Awards' entrants span the spectrum, from the most innovative local start-ups to the most recognizable global brands. The seventh annual program was particularly hotly contested, with more than 650 entries from an impressive array of public and private companies of all sizes, industries and geographic regions in the U.S. and Canada. The 2017 judging panel included professionals from AdWeek, Forbes, Harvard Business Review, Healthcare Innovation News, Inc., and Wired.
