As part of their commitment in the role of uplifting and recognising women for their outstanding accomplishments in business, they want to give these women valued credit at the annual Business Woman of the Year competition.

The three categories that avid business women entered for is Entrepreneur, which is for all women in business holding at least 50% ownership. This category include franchise type businesses and any other type of business or organisation where the entrepreneurial skills of the individual are needed to ensure its success and growth. The Professional category, which is for professional women who have their own practice/business or at least a 50% partnership in the practice or business. And lastly is the Corporate category, this includes women in corporate business, government and para-statal, as well as professional women who do not have their own practice/business but form part of a company, corporation or organisation. All women in this category need to have a budget and staff compliment that they are required to manage.
