Award-winning entrepreneur, businesswoman and international art dealer Joëlle Dinnage, is co-founder of one of the fastest-growing international art platforms, the Global Art Agency which has had a record year as a business, staging sell out art events across Europe, Asia and the USA.
“I’m excited and delighted to have reached the finals of the Stevie® Awards for Women in Business,” said Joëlle. “These are some of the most prestigious awards in the world for female entrepreneurs and reaching the shortlist is a very great honour indeed."
“I got into art at a young age, successfully selling pieces when I was just 13, and after graduating from Art Academy in the Netherlands I set up my first business - an online art gallery making urban and graffiti art more accessible. It soon became the Google page 1 ranking for Cool Art in the UK and US."
“I’ve since worked with hundreds of emerging contemporary artists across the world, staging big art events in beautiful and unusual venues, to bring art lovers and creators together. I love what I do and the prospect of receiving recognition for it is simply fantastic,” she said.
Finalists were chosen by more than 120 business professionals worldwide during preliminary judging. Members of five final judging committees will determine the Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award placements from among the Finalists during the final judging between 19th and 28th October 2015.
