Winning Women

A few months back, I wrote about how few women enter business competitions each year.

That article also talked about the organizations trying to remedy this underrepresentation. One of them is Ernst & Young, which has been running a business contest specifically for women business owners for the past four years.

Now, the company is announcing the last call for applications for this year's Entrepreneurial Winning Women competition. The program is designed to help accelerate the growth of women-owned businesses.

Frankly, I think it is too bad that we can't all compete together, regardless of gender. But after very few women entered their general entrepreneur contests, E&Y felt it could boost participation if it established a special contest geared toward women.

And it has been successful. If you want to enter, or nominate someone else, you can submit online.

The application deadline is June 30, 2011. Ten winners will be announced in October 2011.
