Calling all female entrepeneurs! Here's some fantastic awards for you

The awards recognise business success at every stage of maturity - from embryonic start-ups to established enterprises making a significant contribution to the British economy.

The seven awards are:

Artemis - given to the most inspirational woman running a business who is aged 25 or under.

Demeter - awarded to the most inspirational woman running a business who is aged between 26 and 35.

Athena - presented to the most inspirational woman running a business who is aged between 36 and 49.

Hera - for the most inspirational woman running a business who is aged 50 or over.

Iris - presented to the most inspirational and successful female entrepreneur who runs a technology business that is instrumental in building a smarter planet.

Hestia - for the most inspirational and successful female entrepreneur who runs a business in a remote rural location and makes a contribution to the local community.

Gaia - awarded to the most inspirational and successful female entrepreneur who runs a business with a clearly defined social and/or ethical purpose at its heart.

The chosen entrepreneurs will join an influential alumni of past winners including Specsavers co-founder Dame Mary Perkins, Karren Brady and Dragons' Den star Hilary Devey. As the longest running programme for championing female enterprise, the NatWest everywoman Awards carry a tradition of supporting success in a range of industries.

"These awards recognise that starting and building a successful enterprise does not come with an instruction manual," says Maxine Benson MBE, co founder and director of the everywoman awards. "We understand that business success is driven by women of all ages, from all backgrounds, across industry sectors."
