Last year we saw a wealth of talent coming from the Central region, including Kathy Gregory, Founding President and CEO of Paradigm Quest Inc. who won the PROFIT Award for excellence in Entrepreneurship and Jennifer Flanagan, President and CEO of Actua who won the Social Change Award. This year, we’d like to continue to tap into this incredibly talented pool of women entrepreneurs.

We invite you to go ahead and Nominate the women entrepreneurs you feel deserve recognition AND share it with your members so they can Nominate too!  Why?
