The annual competition is now open for applications from inspiring female entrepreneurs who are leading the way with their innovative startups. Those startups should be less than five years old and employ no more than 10 people, and founders should be able to demonstrate a clear vision and ambition for growth. 

Applications must be submitted by 5pm on Wednesday 22nd September. A shortlist of 10 will then be selected and a public vote will determine the three finalists who will each be invited to pitch live at the Festival of Female Entrepreneur's stage in Bristol on Friday 22nd October 2021.

As well as the accolade of Female Startup of the Year, the winner will also receive a whole host of fab prizes aimed at boosting their startup and helping them realise their plans for growth.

“The past 18 months have been challenging for many businesses but entrepreneurs are optimistic by nature and we've been overwhelmed by the determination and resilience shown by the small business community. This is why this year's celebration of the entrepreneurial spirit is even more essential".
