Elnaz Sarraf Makes Inc.’s 2022 Top 100 Female Founders List

The Founder & CEO of ROYBI INC has been named an honoree of Inc.’s fifth annual Female Founders 100 list highlighting entrepreneurs with world-changing companies.

Inc. today announced its fifth annual Female Founders 100 list, honoring a bold group of 100 women whose innovations and ideas are shaping the world into a better place. Collectively, the 2022 honorees’ companies are estimated to be worth more than $22 billion.

The founders cross all industries and bring with them unique stories of success from each stage of the entrepreneurial journey — from startup to going public, being acquired by big buyers, or spending decades at the helm of an organization. They are reinventing everything from shoes to food and are challenging issues like financial literacy and reproductive health.

“I’m incredibly honored to receive such recognition. When we started ROYBI, we aimed to impact children’s lives by improving their learning experience through artificial intelligence. Today, being an honoree of this prestigious publication shows us that we are on our way to making history,” said Elnaz Sarraf, Founder and CEO of ROYBI INC, “I’d like to thank our amazing team at ROYBI, customers, investors, and partners for their continued support.”

Each year, Inc. editors review thousands of applications highlighting female founders who are challenging the status quo and tackling some of the world’s biggest problems. The list features women who have overcome challenges and lifted those around them while leading impactful organizations across the country. They join the ranks of previous honorees, including Jessica Alba, Tracee Ellis Ross, Rihanna, and Shonda Rhimes.

“These 100 female founders have identified solutions to difficult problems and created valuable, industry-changing companies out of them. We congratulate this year’s list on their achievements and look forward to their continued success,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk.
