Since 2006, the Woman Business Manager of the Year competition showcases exceptional women whose talent and energy stimulate the economy of Luxembourg. The aim of the competition is to highlight the important role of women in the world of business and to support women entrepreneurs.
BIL and its partners have decided to put the spotlight on innovation for the 2017 competition. The mixed-gender jury, composed of representatives of BIL and its partners, will select an innovative project led by a woman. The candidate can either be a manager in a start-up or in a long-established company in Luxembourg. Her project may take the form of a newly created business or be implemented within an SME or large company. The winner will receive the Innovation Award plus a cheque for EUR 10,000 at the ceremony on 27 April 2017.
“What we want to promote with this competition is the diversity of talent and creative spirit of women”, explained Marcel Leyers, BIL’s Chief of Corporate and Institutional Banking.
Application must be submitted at www.wbmy.lu by 10 March with a description of the project. Projects must be innovative and have a positive impact on Luxembourg’s economy. The jury will invite the top five candidates to pitch their projects before selecting the Woman Business Manager of the Year.
