The Veuve Clicquot Bold Woman Award is an international program that recognises the achievements of women in business. Since its start in 1972, the award has been given to women who have made important impacts to their fields as business leaders, innovators, and businesspeople.
Now in its 50th year, the Bold Woman Award recognises women who have demonstrated transformational growth while maintaining an ethical approach to business. This year, South African businesswomen will be able to share their experiences and become part of a group of businesspeople who want to honor Madame Clicquot’s legacy.
Bold Open Database
The project began in 1972 and has since grown into Bold by Veuve Clicquot, an international program that helps women businesses all over the world. This year, the award is introducing the Bold Open Database, which is a way to find and support female businesses all over the world, regardless of their culture, location, or technology.
Candidates for the Bold Woman Award must be the founders or CEOs of companies that have been running for more than three years. You can also join the Bold Future Award if you have been in business for less than three years and have made a big difference in the growth of your company while also making it more ethical.
Men can also get the Bold Champion Award if they have done something to help women be better represented and thought of in society.
To apply for the award, people must fill out a simple form on the Veuve Clicquot website. The business must be based in South Africa or have operations there. The limit for applications is May 14, and a separate group of judges will choose the finalists.
The Legacy of Madame Clicquot
Veuve Clicquot is a champagne house that was started in 1772 in Reims, France. It is known for being bold and coming up with new ideas. In 1805, Madame Clicquot, the company’s founder, took over as head of the House. She was one of the first businesswomen in modern times. Her courage and drive to be a business still inspire women all over the world.
The Veuve Clicquot Bold Woman Award is an opportunity for businesswomen to showcase their achievements, join a community of entrepreneurs, and honour the legacy of Madame Clicquot. With the addition of the Bold Open Database, the award aims to promote female entrepreneurs worldwide and break down barriers to success. By recognising and celebrating the achievements of women in business, we can continue to inspire the next generation of bold and innovative leaders.
