Voting is now open for the 2019 Enterprise Vision Awards, the region’s most prestigious business awards for women.
This year, almost 1,000 nominations were submitted. From young entrepreneurs to silverpreneurs, cosplay designers to accountants and gin-distillers to tech wizards, the finalists had a twenty minute interview to answer in-depth questions and showcase their business to an Executive Judging Panel.
Heather Waters of NatWest said, “The calibre of the EVAS finalists bowled us over. They showed dedication, resilience and a touch of magic. As highlighted in this year’s Rose Review, there are a number of challenges faced by women when they start and scale their business including fear of going into business alone. That’s one of the reasons it’s important to support the achievements made by women in business through the EVAS. We would like to congratulate them all – to get to this point in the process is testament to their talent and hardwork.”
Stephen Bolton of Lancashire Business View said “I thoroughly enjoyed being part of the judging panel for this year's EVA Awards. There’s a fantastic mix of entrepreneurial & inspirational women from across the North West with a real "Can Do" attitude.”
Now it’s time for the public vote. This is a small but important stage of the process. The Judges’ scores have been totalled up and this year there are three categories where they found it hard to choose a clear winner. The public votes can make all the difference.
The winners will be announced at a sparkling awards dinner and ceremony on Friday 27 September at The Winter Gardens in Blackpool.
Voting is now open, it closes at midnight on Friday 6 September 2019. Vote for your favourite businesswomen here https://evasvoting.co.uk/
