Remembering the 10th Anniversary Enterprise Vision Awards Finalists

We wanted to remember the outstanding female entrepreneurs who made it through to the finals of the 10th Anniversary Enterprise Vision Awards. 

It has been a year where these amazing women have excelled themselves in their sector. They lifted the bar and raised the calibre. Making it exceptionally hard for the judges who found themselves judging categories where there were a number of exceptional candidates all vying for the winning place.

We'd like to join them in congratulating each and every woman who made it through to the #EVAS10 Finals* and give a round of applause to all those who were in the shortlist.
