In March we announced our inaugural Her Own Boss Awards, in which we were searching for inspiring, hard-working Kiwi women who had started their own small business that we could help take to the next level.

We were looking for:

  • A creative and commercial thinker who has spotted a gap, solved a problem, or put a new twist on an old idea.
  • A woman who has developed her product or idea and channelled it into a business with the potential for growth.
  • A woman at the beginning of her entrepreneurial journey.

We received a staggering 113 entries and had the incredibly difficult job of whittling that number down to just one winner. We asked you to vote for our People's Choice winner with Trilogy.

Congratulations to our 2018 winners, Nicky Perry and Rebekah (Bex) Lipp from Awesome Inc, pictured above - Nicky is on the left and Bex, right.
