DLD Conference: Arianna Huffington Receives Aenne Burda Award 2012

 
[24-January-2012]
 

MUNICH, January 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Honor for visionary and entrepreneurial behavior in digital media

Arianna Huffington, founder and chief-executive editor of the Internet-newspaper "The Huffington Post", was honored with the Aenne Burda Award during the last day (January 24) of the international digital conference DLD in Munich. Dr. Maria Furtwängler-Burda consigned the trophy, a statue of Pallas Athene. The award honors successful and creative female entrepreneurs with visionary ideas from the digital world, this year for the seventh time already. Maria Furtwängler pleaded in her laudatory speech for female empowerment as start-up founders. Arianna Huffington could serve as a role model here: "Arianna Huffington experienced backstrokes and was never deterred by them - her fearlessness is a stimulus for women, to get active themselves."

Arianna Huffington, born as Arianna Stassinopoulos in July 1950 in Greece, counts as one of the leading and most influential women of the modern media generation. Still in May 2005, when "Huffington Post" entered the online-media world, nobody took her serious. Today, six years later, "Huffington Post" is a constant in American journalism. In February 2011 the internet corporation AOL acquired "Huffington Post" for $315 million. Huffington is also a successful book author and published, among others, "One Becoming Fearless: …in Love, Work and Life" and "Third World America". In 2006 and 2011 Huffington was on Time Magazine's "Time 100" list, which features the 100 most influential people worldwide.

The "Aenne Burda Award for Creative Leadership" honors women for their entrepreneurial and creative achievements within the digital industry. The price is consigned in memory of the visionary entrepreneur Aenne Burda, one of the gorgeous symbolic figures of the German post-war generation. After 1949, Aenne Burda grew the world's biggest fashion publishing house. The award is consigned since 2006. Earlier honorees are Marissa Mayer, Vice President of Google (2006), Flickr founder Caterina Fake (2007), TV-presenter and entrepreneur Martha Stewart (2008), internet-pioneer and investor Esther Dyson (2009), chairwoman of the Mozilla Foundation Mitchell Baker (2010) as well as Net-a-Porter founder Natalie Massenet (2011).
