5 Reasons to Apply for the E100 Awards

As a founder, you know the late nights, early mornings, and countless sacrifices it takes to make your vision a reality. Through it all, you’ve persisted — and now you have an incredible company to show for it.

But sometimes, recognition can be hard to find as a founder. Awards and “top entrepreneur” lists are often dominated by men. Yet, women entrepreneurs are pioneering innovative companies across nearly every industry.

That’s why The Entreprenista 100 Awards, presented by Chase Ink, was created — to celebrate the achievements of women business owners and give your success the spotlight it deserves.

Here are the top 5 reasons founders should apply to win a 2023 Entreprenista 100 Award:
