We began recognizing amazing women in the summer of 2009. During that time, we realized that women had begun to make significant social media, business strategy, and community-building contributions (particularly in the micro business sector), and there was no formal recognition for these women and their momentous efforts; therefore in 2009 we set out to change that! Since that time we’ve featured some of the most amazing women in business from around the United States and Canada.
We are proud to present the 4th Annual Stiletto Woman in Business Awards (SWIBA); one of the first nationally recognized comprehensive award programs to exclusively honor everyday women in the solo and micro business sector.
