Winners will be announced on Friday, October 22 at the Marriott Marquis in New York City’s Times Square. The master of ceremonies will be Bill Rancic, spokesperson for Advanta which is sponsoring the awards and winner of the hit television show “The Apprentice.”
Overall, more than 600 nominations from small companies in virtually every industry were submitted for consideration in 18 categories, including Best Entrepreneur, Best Young Entrepreneur, Best New Product and Mentor of the Year.
For the Community Involvement category, Incite Creative was selected as a finalist for its work with Best Buddies of Maryland, a non-profit group dedicated to enhancing the lives of people with intellectual disabilities through one-to-one friendships and integrated employment.
For Best Buddies’ signature fund-raising event, the High Rollers Ball, Incite Creative created a response-driven marketing program that resulted in an eight-fold increase in revenue when compared to the previous year’s event.
“This is a real double-win for us,” exclaims Incite Creative President Dina Wasmer. “It is gratifying to participate in a worthy cause like Best Buddies, and it’s even better when the effort is so successful that it gets national recognition.”
The Stevie Awards for Women Entrepreneurs are governed by a board of Distinguished Judges & Advisors that features many leading women entrepreneurs and figures in American business, including Carrie Fitzmaurice, publisher for Entrepreneur Media Inc.; Dr. Lisa Krinsky, chairman & president for SFBC International; and Dr. Betty Spence, president of The National Association for Female Executives.
