Recognizing Women High-Growth Founders
A vertex is the highest point – of a journey, of achievements and of stars. In a celestial sphere, the vertex is the point toward which the motion of a group of stars is directed. Each year, AWE presents the Vertex award to a woman founder who has changed the face and direction of women’s high-growth entrepreneurship.
The recipient will be a female founder who has:
- Founded and successfully scaled a high-growth company or companies;
- Moved the needle for women founders, women leaders and business at large; and
- Inspired future women high-growth founders through her visible and viable example.
