The women's business Award
Are you a woman with an outstanding entrepreneurial track record? Then you have the chance to win the SEF.WomenAward.
With the award, we are creating a powerful and forward-thinking platform for businesswomen. The awards will be given in the “Young Entrepreneur of the Year” and “Entrepreneur/CEO of the Year” categories. We will also give an “Honorary Award” to an exceptional person who has worked throughout her lifetime to make Switzerland a strong place to do business.
What you can expect
As a finalist, you will take part in the awards ceremony during the gala evening (8 March 2024 in Zurich). You will also gain access to the unique SEF network and a guaranteed invitation to the Swiss Economic Forum 2025. We will also ensure you have media exposure as a finalist – including a portrait in the NZZ am Sonntag and in various SEF channels. The winner will also receive mentoring from jury members for the Young Entrepreneur category. Last but not least, all winners will be given a Breitling wristwatch.
