The Entreprenista League, a leading membership community for ambitious, entrepreneurial women, is excited to announce applications are now open for its inaugural Entreprenista 100 Awards. Presented in partnership with Chase Ink, the Entreprenista 100 Awards will recognize 100 stand-out women business owners across 11 categories.

“The number of women entrepreneurs is increasing worldwide, however recognition is still lacking. Women own nearly half of businesses in the U.S., raking in trillions of dollars and employing millions of people, and yet, many women continue to face significant obstacles when it comes to starting and scaling their own businesses,” Entreprenista Co-founder Stephanie Cartin said. “The Entreprenista 100 Awards shine a much-deserved light on these extraordinary achievements and help to elevate the women-led entrepreneurial community.”
