Ms. Erica Smith, Executive Director of Bermuda Economic Development Corporation relates; “Bermuda is an entrepreneurial country by nature; and women have been a huge part of that community from the beginning.

“It’s about time we stopped to acknowledge and honour these women, many pulling double and triple duty, as mothers, wives, parental caregivers, and, employees.”

Ms. Stephanie Lee, Facilitator of W.O.M.B Bermuda states; “Women Entrepreneurship Day is sanctioned by the United Nations, to be acknowledged the week of November 11. In Bermuda, it falls during Global Entrepreneurship Week.

” Having participated in Global Entrepreneurship Week previously, it made sense to join with the Bermuda Economic Development Corporation to honour these awardees at the event they’ve already scheduled.”

“We are requesting the community submit names of females who own businesses, giving some information on why they are being nominated. We have devised a rating scale for each nomination to allow for objectivity in the selection process. The numbers are tallied, and winners are determined by the numbers.”

Nominations opened, October 18 closing on November 10. The Awardees will be announced at the private Women in Entrepreneurship Ceremony, November 18.

For more information, contact Stephanie Lee at or call 456-4780. Nominations are available online at the BEDC website, and WOMB Website.
