Stiletto Woman began recognizing amazing women in the summer of 2009. We started by celebrating the Top 50 Most Amazing Women on the Web. During that time, we realized that women had begun to make significant contributions in social media and business strategy (particularly in the micro business sector), and there was no formal recognition for these women and their momentous efforts; therefore in 2009 we set out to change that! Since that time we’ve featured some of the most amazing women in business from around the United States and Canada.
We are proud to present the 3rd Annual Stiletto Woman in Business Awards (SWIBA); one of the first comprehensive award programs to honor everyday women in small and micro business on a national level. Follow us on Twitter @StilettoWoman. Event chat using hashtag #SWIBA.
The event is coming to you LIVE in Atlanta!
