Presented by Chase Ink, The Entreprenista 100 Awards seek to recognize the Top 100 Women Business Owners of 2023
NEW YORK, Sept. 27, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The Entreprenista League, a leading membership community for ambitious, entrepreneurial women, is excited to announce that applications are now open for its second annual Entreprenista 100 Awards. Chase Ink will return as the presenting sponsor of The Entreprenista 100 Awards, which will shine a light on the extraordinary achievements of 100 women business owners across a wide variety of industries.
“Every day in The Entreprenista League, we have the honor of celebrating the accomplishments of truly brilliant leaders, innovators, and visionaries,” said Entreprenista Co-founder Stephanie Cartin. “With The Entreprenista 100 Awards, we aim to extend the reach of that recognition to help these dynamic, forward-thinking founders get the exposure they need to make a real difference in their businesses. The hard truth is that 40% of businesses in the United States are owned by women,* yet the vast majority of funding, recognition, and other resources remain out of reach. We’re aiming to change that.”
The awards officially opened applications this morning at 9 a.m. EST, and the submission period will run through Wednesday, November 22nd, 11:59 p.m. EST. Winners will receive national recognition across Entreprenista.com, Entreprenista’s social and email channels, as well as through the extended network of its partners and more than 1,500 Entreprenista League members. One top winner, named The Entreprenista of the Year, will also receive $5,000 to reinvest in their business and five top winners will receive an Entreprenista grand prize package.
Founders are encouraged to nominate themselves by visiting Entreprenista.com/100. Marketing and PR professionals, or other members of a team, are also able to apply on behalf of their company’s founder.
In an effort to extend recognition to as many deserving women business owners and entrepreneurs as possible, nominees do not need to be current members of The Entreprenista League.
Alongside the selection of the core 2023 Entreprenista 100, an esteemed panel of business luminaries will collaborate with Entreprenista to honor one outstanding founder in each of the following five premier award categories:
- Entreprenista of the Year – an exemplary role model who stands out across all criteria areas

- Changemaker of the Year – a trailblazer using their platform and influence to create a positive impact
- Community Builder of the Year – a super-connector developing and empowering a community
- Uplifter of the Year – a leader dedicated to nurturing the success and wellness of other women
