Gabriela Ender invented the OpenSpace-Online Method after 30 years of experience in entrepreneurial management, systems-oriented organizational development, and change facilitation. In 1999, she experienced a strong and very clear vision of a revolutionary, virtually facilitated, real-time meeting methodology. Since 2002, Gabriela and her team have transformed that vision into reality. In 2003, she was the first female entrepreneur, selected by Berlin Partner (Capital Marketing of Berlin) to receive the annual Founder Award. In 2006, the World E-Gov Forum and PoliticsOnline selected Gabriela Ender and OpenSpace Online as one of the Global Top 20 individuals, organizations, and companies having the greatest impact on changing the world of Internet and politics. After three weeks of voting by people around the world, she received the Top 10 World Changer 2006 Award.
