Welcome to the North East Woman Entrepreneur of the Year Awards, the annual event that recognises, rewards and promotes achievement of women in business in the North East.

Hello

Applications for the 2015 North East Woman Entrepreneur of the Year Awards are now closed. Thank you to everyone who has submitted an application and good luck!

This will be the astounding 16th year that this prestigious award ceremony will take place. Eagerly anticipated by women entrepreneurs all over the North East this is a great chance to showcase their hard work and achievements during the previous twelve months.

Receiving a WIN Award will not only ensure your organisation will have the kudos of being an award winning organisation, but it will also be an opportunity to showcase the company and its expertise amongst your contemporaries thus further encouraging others to follow your example. You can also benchmark your business against others, sharpen the focus of your business and its activities, learn from other organisations and very importantly motivate and reward your colleagues.

If you are a woman running a business in any sector, of any size, shape or turnover, or are a leading an organization, we want to hear your story. It doesn’t matter if you’ve just started or you’ve been trading for years, there’s a category for you.

A WIN Award is a major accolade that could really open doors for your business. Your success will be shared with guests and peers from North East businesses at the awards evening on Friday 13th November 2015 at the prestigious new Crowne Plaza Hotel, Newcastle Upon Tyne.
