New York – Moroccan American Nadine Hanafi was honored last week at the United Nations headquarters in New York among the most successful young entrepreneurs in the United States.
The event was organized by Empact Showcase, an organization that celebrates the impact and diversity of young entrepreneurs.
Nadine was chosen for being the founder and CEO of We Are Visual, a creative agency dedicated to eradicating mediocre presentations and empowering people to turn PowerPoint into a powerful communication tool that enhances their message rather than a design liability that puts their audience to sleep.
We Are Visual specializes in creating highly visual and engaging presentations that help their clients tell a compelling story. Based in Miami, FL., We Are Visual serves an international clientele (5 languages spoken) and works with professional speakers, entrepreneurs and Fortune 100 companies.
Empact Showcase recognized Nadine Hanafi’s company as being among the United States’ “Best Companies Started & Run by Young Entrepreneurs.”
“Being honored at the United Nations and having my logo featured on the Nasdaq billboard in Times Square were major highlights in my entrepreneurial career. I am proud to be part of such an energetic group of young entrepreneurs who are each changing the world in their own way,” Nadine told Morocco World News.
“I hope this will inspire fellow Moroccans to start their businesses and make a name for themselves and honor Morocco,” she added.
Originally from Morocco, Nadine Hanafi started her presentation design agency out of her living room in August 2013. Using only her personal savings, she embarked on a risky entrepreneurial journey with no business plan: she had a dream of building a successful business, a vision for the company and a gut feeling that people could use her PowerPoint skills to improve their presentation content. Within 14 months, Nadine single-handedly grew the business to six-figure revenue with no external capital.
Nadine first made a name for herself in the presentation design niche market by publishing SlideShare presentations that became viral and landed her a spot in the top 1% most viewed content on SlideShare in 2013. After designing visuals for several speakers at TEDxMiami and TEDxCoconutGrove, Nadine was interviewed by Fast Company in a feature article called The Startup That Wants to Change the Way We Do Presentations.
Within a few months, Nadine’s client list grew more than tenfold as she got to work with entrepreneurs and speakers in 12 countries as well as several Fortune 100 companies. Today, Nadine is expanding her team in Miami and developing more strategic and global partnerships. Her new goal for the company is to design 1500 presentations, in 15 languages, in 2015.
