About the Compass Rose Entrepreneurs category

Women are leaving their mark on the world in amazing ways, embracing great risks to achieve even greater rewards. Female entrepreneurship is incredibly important for our future and for closing the gender gap but in many ways their challenges are greater than those experienced by male counterparts.

The Nominee must be actively in her role on or before December 31, 2023.
