The Demeter Award, inspired by the goddess of the harvest, will go to the most inspirational woman running a business who is aged between 26 and 35.
The third award, dedicated to Athena, the goddess of wisdom, will be given to the most inspirational woman running a business who is aged between 36 and 49.
