General information

Female Entrepreneurs: The Future of UK Business


2018 nominations have now closed.

Now in its 16th year, the NatWest everywoman Awards will celebrate the success of Britain’s top female entrepreneurs at all stages of their journey – from young businesses to those who have established multi-million pound organisations. Every year these Awards attract hundreds of entries and all finalists and winners have reaped the benefits of entering everywoman’s flagship programme transforming them into pioneering role models for future business owners.

The NatWest everywoman Awards celebrate the UK’s brightest female entrepreneurs, from innovative start-ups to established multi-million-pound organisations while showcasing the achievements of nominees, often in the face of adversity. Becoming a finalist is an excellent way to raise both individual and company profiles, as well as encourage more women and young girls to consider becoming a female business owner. 


Who is it for?

The NatWest everywoman Awards are open to any female business owner whether they operate as a limited company, sole trader, or in partnership with others. The awards celebrate the woman behind the business, her personal successes and achievements and how she individually inspires others. As such, we cannot accept joint nominations.
