NEW YORK, Jan. 17, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The Entreprenista League, a leading membership community for ambitious, entrepreneurial women, is excited to announce the winners of its inaugural Entreprenista 100 Awards. Presented in partnership with Chase Ink, the Entreprenista 100 Awards honors 100 exemplary female business owners across 11 categories.

In its first year, the Entreprenista 100 Award received submissions across 20 industries from impressive leaders of female-owned businesses at various growth stages. An esteemed panel of judges, along with the Entreprenista, team reviewed all applications, taking into account growth and achievement in terms of revenue, funding, operational size, impact and awareness — as well as the personal success stories of each applicant.

The must-attend event will highlight the achievements of the Entreprenista 100 Awards winners, and feature a lineup of speakers to share their own inspirational stories and discuss the future of women in business.

The event is open to the public and all are invited to enjoy lunch and celebratory drinks in addition to an opportunity to connect with elite female business leaders from across the country. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at entreprenista.com/e100tickets.
