Entries open for First Women Awards 2013

Entries have opened for this year’s First Women Awards.

Created in 2005 by Real Business and the CBI, and run in association with Lloyds Banking Group, the awards are designed to recognise women who are “setting the agenda for future generations” across several sectors, including retail.  

Holly Tucker and Sophie Cornish, who created bespoke online shopping service Notonthehighstreet.com, took home the Retail and Consumer award.

Other winners include the founder of Specsavers, Dame Mary Perkins and Thea Green, founder and managing director of Nails Inc.

Matthew Rock, co-founder of Real Business, said: “The First Women Awards are the hub for Britain’s most pioneering, exciting women. Over eight years, we have established a platform and mutually supportive network for remarkable and fearless women.”

The closing date for entries is April 5, and the awards will be held at the London Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square, on June 12, hosted by presenter Clare Balding.
