About the awards

The 2024 everywoman Entrepreneur Awards is the UK’s leading awards programme for women in business. Now in its 22nd year, the event continues to build on its longstanding legacy and bold and continuing impact on British Enterprise by celebrating, amplifying, and facilitating the success of entrepreneurial women and their businesses. 

When The everywoman Awards were launched in 2003, female entrepreneurs and their businesses were unknown and missed from the history of Britain’s economic success because they were not profiled in the media. To remedy this, the awards created a platform to uncover, share and amplify the diverse array of businesses that women were running and the stories of ordinary women achieving extraordinary success. 

Over the last 21 years the everywoman Awards has built an archive of female achievement in business; a rich tapestry of stories, comprising women of all ages and backgrounds, and from all corners of the UK. The categories for 2024 enable a broad the range of businesses and female entrepreneurs to be celebrated, reflecting the diverse fabric of entrepreneurship that makes up the UK landscape. Through sharing the entrepreneurial stories of these women, the programme continues to be a part of history, by making these bold ambitions for female entrepreneurship and their role in the British economy come to life.  

Nominations for the 2024 everywoman Entrepreneur Awards are now closed. Entrants will be notified in September if they are required for the judges’ interview in October.

Finalists will be announced in late October and winners will be announced at the Awards ceremony at The Londoner, Leicester Square on 4 December.
