Awards for Women Business Owners

Awards are an excellent chance to get your name out there or recognize an incredible woman business owner.

Below is a list of upcoming award opportunities and some tips on how you can make the most of them!

Why nominate yourself

  • The publicity. You’ll benefit from the publicity of the awards and get exposure for your business and yourself. If you make a short-list – or win – you can share the news on social media, in press releases, in your e-newsletter and more.
  • The credibility. With an award under your belt, you gain credibility as an expert in your field. It is like an A-plus review of you and your business and that’s something you can’t buy.
  • The next generation. Role models are important to help girls envision themselves as leaders. We need to share more women success stories!
  • The prizes. Many awards have great prizes, including mentoring, coaching, unique opportunities to grow your business and, of course, cash.
  • The process. Even if you don’t win, you’ll learn a lot about yourself, your supporters and the important role you play in the community. You can fine-tune your pitch and try again next time.
