ATLANTA, Oct. 13, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sharecare, the leading online health and wellness engagement platform, today announced it is the recipient of a Silver Stevie® Award for Company of the Year in the Health Products and Services, and Pharmaceuticals category in the 12th Annual International Business Awards. As the world's premier business awards program, The 2015 International Business Awards received 3700 nominations across more than 60 nations and territories.
Sharecare* was automatically entered into The International Business Awards competition due to the high average scores it received in the First Annual German Stevie® Awards that were held earlier this year. In those awards, Feingold Technologies, which Sharecare acquired in February 2015, took home a Gold Stevie® for its voice app technology and a Silver Stevie® for Company of the year. Additionally, in June, Sharecare received a Bronze Stevie® Award in The 13th Annual American Business Awards in the Health Products and Services category for its website.
“The Stevie Awards are widely recognized as the 'Oscars' of the business world, and to receive four in less than a year is an incredible honor,” said Erik Feingold, chief innovation officer of Sharecare. “We take great pride in our German Stevies and American Business Award, and receiving a Silver Stevie in the International Business Awards is further validation of the positive impact our products can have on improving people’s health and wellness.”
Nicknamed the "Stevies" for the Greek word "crowned," the winners of The International Business Awards will be recognized at a gala awards banquet at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Toronto, Canada, on October 23, 2015.

*The official entry for the Silver Stevie Award (IBA) was listed in the name of "Feingold Technologies, A Sharecare company”. Sharecare acquired Feingold Technologies in February 2015.
