First-class female entrepreneurial talent sought!

Are you an enthusiastic woman entrepreneur who is passionate about running her own business? Are you keen to inspire others by sharing the story behind your business success and your vision with them? Register now for the WOMED Award and give business successes achieved by and for women a face.

WOMED is the acronym for Women in Enterprise and Development. Every year, Markant vzw and UNIZO present this award to female entrepreneurs who have been successfully running a business of their own in their primary professional field for a period of at least five years. Additionally, they aim to shine a spotlight on fledgling women entrepreneurs through ‘De Belofte’ (The Promise), with a view to inspiring and thus motivating other women towards taking their first steps as entrepreneurs.

A new feature added to the website this year is the ‘Nominate’ button, which will allow everyone to quickly and easily nominate a first-class female entrepreneur. Of course, the organisation will contact all nominees in person to find out if they are indeed willing to be put forward as candidates first!

The deadline for registration and nominations is 19 November, on
