Entries have now open for this year’s Business Women Scotland Business Awards.

The key themes this year of collaboration and sustainability at the prestigious annual awards are watch words reflecting the changing ways we have been doing business since the start of the pandemic.

Start-up businesses, women in tech and social media are also among the categories at the awards, back for a seventh year, that mark the achievements of the growing number of women-led businesses and the entrepreneurial talents of women across Scotland.

Entries are now open in the search for business role models to inspire the next generation of leaders.

Categories range from Rising Star of the Year and Established Business of the Year to Inspirational Woman of the Year.

New categories in the 2021 awards include Collaboration Award, Sustainable Business Award and Women in Tech Award.

Supported by Scotland Can-Do, Business Gateway, STV, Digital Boost and Azure Global, the awards ceremony on 19 November will be online.

The overall winner of the awards, selected by the judging panel, will receive the prize of a two-week airtime campaign with Go Radio along with production of a commercial.

Lynne Kennedy MBE, founder of Business Women Scotland, said: “We want to showcase some of the most enterprising and successful women from around Scotland.

"Women who’ve had the courage to follow their dreams, whether that be starting their own business, making it to the top in their career, or using their expertise and knowledge to help other women be the best they can be.”

“We have always wanted to shine a light on the great work women are doing across Scotland while being role models for the next generation.”
