“Times of economic crisis often create entrepreneurial opportunities. We have no doubt that the global pandemic will lead to more women starting their own businesses. But for them to succeed, it is crucial that they have a network to support them; personally, professionally and financially,” commented Karen Gill, co-founder of everywoman.

“In partnership with our esteemed judging panel, we aim to identify those women who are breaking business boundaries and whose inspirational journeys will inspire, motivate and pave the way for more women business owners.”

Entries close on 5 July and the winners will be announced at a ceremony in December 2021.
