Webee COO and Co-founder Cecilia Flores Named a Winner in Connected World’s Women of Technology and IoT Awards
Recognized as a Top Woman in IoT for her Dedication to Leading Innovative Change in the Industry
SUNNYVALE, CALIF. – August 11, 2021 – Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and AI innovator Webee today announced its Chief Operating Officer (COO) and co-founder Cecilia Flores has been named a winner in Connected World’s Women of Technology and IoT Awards. Connected World selected winners by evaluating the unique lens each woman brings to their respective companies that helps push connected technologies forward.
“I am so proud to be recognized by Connected World alongside these impressive recipients and would like to personally congratulate Donna Moore, CEO of LoRa Alliance for whom I have much respect for and Webee works with closely,” said said Cecilia Flores, COO and co-founder of Webee. “This recognition shines a light on the disruptive IoT innovation my team and I are developing to help reduce food waste and lessen the impact of food manufacturing operations on the environment.”
Webee’s no-code, intuitive end-to-end toolset eliminates the friction of IoT implementations and identifies inefficiencies in food, beverage and agriculture manufacturing processes in real-time. The platform’s live metrics help farmers and manufacturers maximize the use of their data, making real-world, actionable insights possible. From intuitive onboarding of sensors and legacy devices, to building applications, users take full control and program the system and dashboards on a virtual drag-and-drop canvas that doesn't require any technical expertise.
“The list of broken processes in manufacturing and agricultural operations is seemingly never ending, but Webee fortunately and firmly believes that IIoT can greatly help,” explained Flores. “Some of the challenges faced by manufacturing customers include the extensive amount of manual controls leading to human error, the lack of visibility into legacy machines and delayed problem detection. Webee’s goal is to quickly and efficiently collect information that will allow our customers to set up workflows in a drag-and-drop environment. Webee customers can simulate scenarios and manipulate information in an agile way, enabling them to connect disparate machines and then make sense of the subsequent data.”

Also in 2021 Flores was named a winner in M12's Global Female Founders Competition; a winner in the Globant Awards; recognized as one of Silicon Valley Business Journal’s Most Influential Women; and was welcomed as a fellow in the Tory Burch Foundation Annual Fellows Program.
