Calling All Alpha Females

The Women’s Presidents’ Organization and Fast Company magazine are creating an award competition for female entrepreneurs.
Finalists will be chosen through an open application process by the Fast Company staff, and a panel of judges will select 25 winners. The winners will be honored at a conference in April and featured in the magazine’s May issue.
“These awards seek to identify and celebrate women business owners who are innovating new business models and leading the organizations that are redefining the way we all live and work,” according to a news release about the awards.
Visit Fast Company to apply for the award. Applications are due by Jan. 15.

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. After working for seven agencies in five states and freelancing for several more, I ventured out on my own in 2009. Today, as head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon, I'm focused on providing effective integrated marketing solutions to mid-market clients.


  1. In this modern, up-to-date world, I thought women were supposed to be equal in all aspects of life. If that is the case, why would a “women’s award” of any kind be necessary?
    Just wondering.
