Lancashire businesswomen recognised as Enterprise Vision Awards finalists are announced

EVAs group

A wide range of Lancashire businesswomen who have benefitted from Boost support have been announced as finalists in the 2022 Enterprise Vision Awards. 25 current or previous recipients of Boost’s funded programmes are included among the finalists, part of a total of 58 businesswomen from Lancashire who have made the list.

The Enterprise Vision Awards (EVAs) recognises women across the North West who are leading the way in their industries or building businesses. They are the UK’s largest business awards dedicated solely to women. Boost has partnered with this year’s awards to encourage more women from Lancashire to enter and to also provide advice to women submitting their applications.

Darshana Patel, Boost programme officer, Lancashire County Council, said: “Boost’s role as Lancashire’s Business Growth Hub is to inspire and shine a light on the diversity of growing Lancashire businesses and support anyone starting and growing a business in Lancashire. “We’re proud that so many Lancashire businesswomen have been recognised through this year’s EVAs awards with many having received or  currently receiving support from Boost.

“Boost can support owners and leaders of Lancashire companies at every stage of their business journey and this year’s list of finalists is a real testament to that. I would like to wish good luck to all this year’s finalists!”

The finalists will now attend an interview with the judges where they will showcase their achievements and share their stories of growth, impact and their visions for the future. More than 700 guests are expected to attend the EVAs awards ceremony on Friday 23 September at The Winter Gardens in Blackpool where the winners will be announced.
