NEW JERSEY MONTHLY October 2014 LWE 1 @leadingwomenentrepreneurs @lweus @LindaWellbrock
The Leading Women Entrepreneurs (LWE) Initiative was
developed for the purpose of recognizing and connecting
female business owners who exhibit outstanding performance
in four areas: Market Potential, Innovation, Community
Involvement and Advocacy for Women.
Hundreds of nominations were received from women
entrepreneurs who are all accomplished, intelligent and inspired
by their work. The 150 LWE finalists who were selected are
women who together, support numerous non-profits, are
employing thousands, generating millions and represent a
variety of industries. A list of the Phase One Finalists is on page
19 of the LWE section. Phase One finalists are automatically
submitted for Phase Two of the competition where our Advisory
Board helps to select the Top 25. The Top 25 are then celebrated
at the annual LWE Recognition Evening which will be held on
December 4, 2014 at Fiddlers Elbow Country Club.
The LWE initiative is an opportunity to showcase these
dynamic women and their stories to the next generation of
business owners. We hope that learning about these powerful
journeys is enough to inspire many others.
Through our media partners, events, global retreats and
membership we hope to spotlight women courageous enough
to imagine a better life and then make it happen. We honor their
innovation, drive and commitment as essential to the continued
growth of American business.
It is with great honor that we present the 2014 Leading
Women Entrepreneur finalists. They are women who have
demonstrated the value of leadership and the heights to
which it can take a person, a community or even a nation.
