“After tinkering in her garage, former corporate exec Evelyn Torres developed and patented the ToughTower™, a mobile communications device that helps bring service to remote areas. She formed Solaris Technologies Inc. in 2011, and her towers are now used all over the world. Investing in herself is one of the biggest risks she’s taken, says Torres, whose parents came to the U.S. from Puerto Rico. It was worth it, though, to “change lives by providing communication networks to areas in need that didn’t have access before.”
