Nicole Janssen, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of AltaML, Canada’s leading artificial intelligence (AI) studio, has been recognized as one of North America’s Top 25 Women of Influence for 2023. 

The award recognizes a diverse group of powerhouse leaders, celebrating their impact and unique accomplishments, which have single-handedly contributed to the advancement of women globally. According to the Women of Influence+ (WOI+), this year’s honourees hail from various sectors and career stages.

“Each woman on this year’s list has made their mark in the past year, whether by spearheading initiatives for the greater good, achieving inspiring feats on a global scale, or utilizing their influence to effect tangible change,” said Dr. Rumeet Billan, CEO of WOI+.

As a first-time recipient of this prestigious award, Janssen credits her entrepreneurial spirit and ambition for her continued success in tech. Her lifelong determination to make a global impact has led to the co-founding of multiple successful ventures, including AltaML in 2018. 

With those career-defining moments in mind, Janssen has harnessed her leadership strengths to help build up other aspiring female entrepreneurs by offering knowledge, guidance, and mentorship. 

“Helping women succeed is up to all of us,” she explained. “The path for women to rise to the top is often more difficult, but we can most certainly do it and do it well.” 

According to Janssen, receiving this award is validation that all the effort women put in to break down barriers and inspire action is working. 

“It’s vital that we have a seat at the table,” she added. “We need to help inform big decisions and shape the future for the next generation. Every time a woman is recognized in a leadership role or for an award like the Top 25 Women of Influence, it inspires other women and girls to see that there’s an opportunity for them in this world and that they can achieve their dreams.”
