Ernst & Young: Eleven national winners of 2012 Entrepreneurial Winning WomenTM Program
October 26, 2012

Women entrepreneurs play an essential role in creating sustainable economic growth in today’s uncertain economy. In fact, women start businesses at twice the rate as men. But, despite robust growth in early stages, women-owned companies don’t always scale up to their full potential.
As a partial incentive, Ernst & Young LLP today announced the 11 winners of its 2012 Entrepreneurial Winning Women program, a national competition and leadership initiative that identifies and connects a select group of women entrepreneurs with the advisors, resources and insights they need to scale their businesses and become market leaders.
This year’s Entrepreneurial Winning Women award recipients were chosen by a panel of independent judges from a group of 110 applicants. The women own companies in a wide variety of industry sectors, including lifestyle and luxury brands, legal solutions, corporate wellness, and food and beverage. Combined, the group’s total 2011 revenues are nearly $85 million.
The 11 members of the Entrepreneurial Winning Women Class of 2012 will receive an all-expense paid trip to this year’s Ernst & Young Strategic Growth Forum® 2012, an invitation-only gathering of more than 2,000 high-growth, market-leading company CEOs. The Forum presents a one-of-a-kind platform for Entrepreneurial Winning Women to introduce their companies and share their corporate and personal brands with a community of Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year® winners, top executives, prospective investors and business advisors.
