Woman Business Owner Awards

In 1999, NAWBO-SA President, Chris Mitchell, and Board Member, Elise Cox, created the prestigious Entrepreneurial Spirit Awards to publicly recognize and honor the valuable economic contributions made by women business owners (WBO) in the San Antonio area. Over the years, the Entrepreneurial Spirit Awards has become known as The Premier Women Entrepreneurial Event. As the most coveted award for women business owners, the Entrepreneurial Spirit Award is the only award presented exclusively to women entrepreneurs by their peers.    

In 2017 in an effort to rebrand the Chapter and align itself to NAWBO National the award was renamed the "Woman Business Owner" Award.
