Apply or Nominate a Top Women-Owned Business

WIT encourages more women to proactively become leaders in their organizations – and in some cases, to even start their own businesses. Entrepreneurship is a viable means of economic self-sufficiency and many women are choosing an enterprise connected to transportation to be part of their career aspirations. WIT’s official magazine, Redefining the Road, will feature in its first edition of 2018 a list of “Top Women-Owned Businesses” in transportation. Criteria used to identify qualified applicants will include status as majority ownership by a woman, financial stability and growth, innovation, and entrepreneurial spirit of the woman owner. 

If you are a woman-owned business (or know of one) complete this online form no later than Jan. 26, 2018.

Here's how it works:
- There is no fee to apply or nominate
- Be prepared to confirm the enterprise has majority control by a woman
- Provide the following:

  • Confirmation the enterprise is privately held
  • Rate of growth within the last 12 months
  • Year founded
  • City and state or province where enterprise was founded
  • Method by which enterprise was originally funded.

Then, provide how the enterprise demonstrates efficiencies and innovation in the service/product offering, value to the industry, and/or processes, as well as unusual or unique characteristics about the woman owner or leader of this enterprise or accomplishment she has attained in the last 12-18 months. Both responses should be no longer than 250 words each.
