Shahrzad Rafati, founder and CEO of BroadbandTV, was this week awarded Executive of the Year at the nextMEDIA Digi Awards.
In addition to reaching over one billion monthly impressions this year, BroadbandTV secured an initial $36 million investment from RTL Group, which at the time marked the largest private placement into an Internet media company in Canada since 2007.
“It is an honour to be recognized once again by nextMEDIA and to be nominated among such an extraordinary group of finalists,” said Rafati.
“The past year has been a time of tremendous growth and excitement for BroadbandTV, this award is testament to the hard work put in by our amazing team," she added.
Shahrzad Rafati, who is no stranger to winning awards, also this week was recognized as one of Canada's most powerful women. She's also a recent guest contributor for Techvibes, having written "Four Tips to Help You Vest up for Investment" in September.
