The Top Women of 2019
The Top Women in Business Reception celebrated the influential women of Colorado.
On Thursday, June 20, the influential women business leaders of Colorado and their teams filled the room at The Studios at Overland Crossing for the annual ColoradoBiz Top Women in Business celebration.
In an ever-evolving business landscape, these fearless women business owners are navigating, strategizing, building and motivating in Colorado and beyond. From startup founders to CEOs, owners, mentors and team members, these females are carving out opportunities for the next generation to follow in their footsteps.
Dress for Success, a local nonprofit, collected over 30 handbags and donations at the door that will be put toward the purchase of new clothing racks and plus size clothing items for the Dress for Success boutique space. Since 1997, the organization has worked to empower women, helping them achieve independence and gain confidence by outfitting them to thrive.
Unveiled at the evening event were the 2019 Top 100 Woman-Owned Companies. View the list here.
"The Top Women in Business event continues to grow in size with many successful women coming together, networking and making meaningful connections each year," says ColoradoBiz publisher Sylvia Harmon. "These Women to Watch, Top 100 women business owners and Women in Wealth, to name a few, are some of the most dynamic in the state. We enjoy celebrating their success each year and look forward to continued collaboration."
Emceeing for the evening was CBS4 Meteorologist Lauren Whitney who had the honor of announcing the winners of our Top Producer, Booming Biz and Rising Star awards:
TOP PRODUCER AWARD (highest revenue per employee)
BOOMING BIZ AWARD (greatest revenue growth since 2017)
RISING STAR AWARD (youngest company with the highest revenue)
The event would not have been as great of a success it was without the help of the incredible sponsors Bellco, BKD, Christopherson Business Travel, Denver Golf, and Versatility Creative Group. Not to mention Vino Salida, Mr. Coffee Snob, and Sugarwish for the wine, coffee, and candy samples! Other program partners included Footers Catering, COBRT, South Metro Denver Chamber, BMA Colorado, YellowDog, Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce, and ACG Denver.
