Recognizing the finest women entrepreneurs in North America and around the globe.
The Enterprising Women of the Year event is the magazine’s annual celebration of the world’s top women entrepreneurs. Nominations for this prestigious award are submitted each Fall on the magazine’s website. The event draws heavy interest from the magazine’s readership and allows us to shine the spotlight on a remarkable group of outstanding women. The top organizations for women entrepreneurs partner with us to help assure wide support for this outstanding annual event.
The event is co-hosted by some of the country’s top corporations. It generates international media attention for the award winners and sponsoring companies who are a part of this very special event. Now in its 20th year, the program recognizes top women entrepreneurs in categories that include women business owners with revenues up to $1 million annually, over $1 million and up to $5 million, over $5 million and up to $10 million, over $10 million and up to $25 million, over $25 million and up to $100 million, and over $100 million in annual revenues. We recognized 100 outstanding women at our 2021 event. We have also inducted 50 women into the Enterprising Women Hall of Fame over the past 20 years and have presented a number of Advocacy Awards to nonprofit organizations and other advocates deserving of recognition.
The Enterprising Women of the Year Awards Celebration and Conference is widely regarded as one of the premier networking opportunities for women business thought leaders and women entrepreneurs from the United States and around the world.
