Women Entrepreneurs Benefit (WEB) Honorees

NAWBO also recognizes outstanding women business owners with two major annual awards through WEB, the Women Entrepeneurs Benefit. These include the Trailblazer Award, which honors a business owner who has learned how to compete and thrive in the business world, creating a solid, successful business; and the Rising Star Award, which honors the business owner who in less than 10 years has built a successful business during what is often the most crucial time for succeeding as an entrepreneur. Find out more about WEB.
