Entreprenista Honors Top 100 Women Business Leaders of 2022

Entreprenista 100 winners will be recognized at a celebration & networking luncheon this March

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.

You can view the full list of the Entreprenista 100 Award winners here.

Winners will be honored at an Entreprenista 100 Awards celebration and networking luncheon at the PGA Resort in Palm Beach Gardens, FL on Saturday, March 4, 2023. 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.

During the event, Entreprenista will announce the winners of the final three awards:
Entreprenista of the Year, Mamaprenista of the Year, and Career Pivot of the Year. Not only will these impactful leaders receive a one-year membership to The Entreprenista League, but they will also win $1,000 each to reinvest in their businesses and a stand-alone feature on Entreprenista.com.

“As someone who has launched multiple businesses, I know firsthand how hard it can be to make a name for yourself and I am incredibly impressed by all of the outstanding female leaders who applied for the inaugural Entreprenista 100 Awards,” Michelle Cordeiro Grant, founder of Gorgie, said. “If there’s one thing I’ve learned along my own founder’s journey, it’s that community is the key to success. What The Entreprenista League is doing to support and elevate female entrepreneurs is a game-changer and I’m honored to have had the opportunity to be involved in this initiative.”
