When we conceived the Women Who Empower Innovator Awards, we were excited about the program’s ability to help us reach some bold objectives. Yes, we wanted to amplify the power of Northeastern’s entrepreneurial ecosystem and, yes, we sought to strengthen investments in women by providing funds, prestige, and networks to propel their efforts. But we also really wanted to honor the innovators themselves rather than simply their innovations.
Now in our third year of accepting applications, the Women Who Empower Innovator Awards are more robust than ever. We encourage applications from all—even those who have applied in past years. We are also accepting nominations from our community. To nominate someone, send an email with their name, contact details, and a paragraph about why you are nominating them to Betsy Ludwig at [email protected]. We look forward to discovering our applicants’ myriad achievements, ventures, and impact.
We are only considering the first 100 applications, so please apply as soon as possible!
