Become an Awards Sponsor

Sponsoring  Award Programs is a great way to grow your business and increase your standing in the community.

A partnership with NLOWE’s Entrepreneur of the Year Awards can be an incredible marketing strategy that connects you to the community in a meaningful way.

About the Awards

We’re more than a membership organization – we’re a community – a place to share ideas and connect with other women in the entrepreneurial space. The Entrepreneur of the Year Awards recognize and celebrate the achievements of the award recipients, nominees and all women entrepreneurs who are rebuilding local economies across the province. These women are using innovative technologies and expanding into new markets. They are leaders in their fields and respected in their industries. In short, they are the best and brightest businesswomen in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Entrepreneurial Excellence Award

The Entrepreneurial Excellence Award recognizes an entrepreneur who has owned and been in operating control of a business(es) for at least ten years and has made a significant impact on the economy, and whose success is an inspiration for other women in business.

Join Our Community

A partnership with NLOWE’s Entrepreneur of the Year Awards can be a great marketing strategy that connects you to the community in a meaningful way.

We cannot underestimate the importance of supporting women business owners. Through organizations like NLOWE, we are increasing the number of women entrepreneurs in this province. Receiving Entrepreneur of the Year and being recognized by my peers is truly an honour. Thank you, NLOWE, for recognizing my lifelong career, which has brought me so much joy and I have loved so much.
