Every day, women entrepreneurs are working to grow their small businesses, create jobs, drive innovation, and increase America’s global competitiveness. Although they start businesses at more than twice the rate of men, there are still a host of challenges that make growth an uphill battle. Therefore, in celebration of our five year anniversary, the Maryland Women’s Business Center (MWBC) would like to highlight women entrepreneurs that have persevered to achieve success, while thanking our volunteers and sponsors that help make this all possible.
The nomination, eligibility criteria, and selection process for the various MWBC Awards selected from nominated individuals or businesses are as follows.
