The 2015 Inductees are amazing trailblazers who represent nearly 100 years of Minnesota history. They have overcome challenges and obstacles many thought impossible. Their business savvy and entrepreneurial successes have left a legacy that will impact Minnesota for years to come.

Inductees were selected because they:

  • Made enduring contributions to Minnesota's entrepreneurial community
  • Made an impact on women's entrepreneurial development in Minnesota
  • Had a meaningful connection to Minnesota (place of birth, education, and/or business location)
  • Demonstrated leadership qualities or a spirit of entrepreneurial innovation that can serve as an inspiration to future generations of Minnesota entrepreneurs

The celebration will include a dinner and an inspirational induction ceremony. You will have the chance to meet and talk with these amazing women!

This is a must attend event!
