Women Who Mean Business


Women-owned businesses add strength, diversity, and vitality to the local economy and it's time again to celebrate their impact and success. Since its launch in 2005, Grand Rapids Business Journal's biennial Top Women-Owned Businesses program has sought to honor the region's leading female entrepreneurs.

In March 2019, the Top Women-Owned Businesses Awards will become part of a new Business Journal event, Women Who Mean Business. Additional event details will be announced soon! 

Nominations now open!
The Business Journal is now seeking nominations for the 2019 Top Women Owned Businesses Awards. Finalists are nominated by the community and winners in each category will be selected by a selection committee and announced at the Women Who Mean Business event in March. The nomination form is simple and takes only 2-3 minutes to complete and submit.

Once nominated, nominees will complete a formal application to provide needed details to assist the selection committee. Women business owners may also apply directly here.  

The deadline to submit nominations is November 19, 2018.
