NC Women Business Owner Hall of Fame Criteria
Regardless of whether the inductee is living or deceased, their accomplishments and/or contributions are of such special significance that they will be thought of as outstanding when reflected upon from the perspective of future generations. Consideration of potential inductees requires that their efforts, accomplishments and impact be documented and widely honored.

Inductees must have:

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

    Selection for the North Carolina Women Business Owners Hall of Fame is not an honor that you can write a nomination for – consideration of potential inductees requires that the woman's efforts, accomplishments and impact be documented and widely honored within the business community. Further, the criteria for induction into the Hall of Fame emphasizes the descriptors “significant”, “enduring contributions" and “impact” on women’s entrepreneurial development. If you know of a woman whose accomplishments encompass all three components, please provide us with her name and successes below so we can research her background further.
