AOA Dx is proud to announce that co-founders Oriana Papin-Zoghbi and Anna Jeter have been named to Inc.’s 2022 Female Founders 100 List.
Inc.’s fifth annual Female Founders 100 list honors 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.
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.
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.
“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.
Under Papin-Zoghbi and Jeter’s leadership, AOA Dx has made significant headway in developing the first early detection tool for ovarian cancer. In a landmark reviewed study, AOA Dx’s technology AKRIVIS GD™ showed over 90% accuracy for detection of ovarian cancer, including early stage disease when 5 year survival rates are greater than 90%.
AKRIVIS GD™, a liquid biopsy assay for early detection of ovarian cancer, has shown high sensitivity and specificity, addressing an urgent market need. These results were verified and published in the Journal of Precision Medicine.
“We are extremely honored to receive this recognition by Inc. and to be among a group of such talented and innovative women. We are working so hard every single day to help give women the tools they deserve to better their health. We thank Inc. for recognizing our passion for what we do and the impact we strive to make in women’s health.” said Oriana Papin Zoghbi, CEO and Co-Founder of AOA Dx and Anna Jeter, Chief Development Officer and Co-Founder of AOA Dx.
