Since 1972, Veuve Clicquot created the Bold Award to honor the creator of the brand, Madame Clicquot, know as ‘Grande Dame of champagne’. For more than 50 years, it has been rewarding women´s entrepreneurship for encouraging generations of achievements. The Bold Award is an incentive created to support the trajectories and projects of many women entrepreneurs in all fields. Literally this award is aimed at the audacity of women.

This international award is divided into two main prizes: the Bold Woman Award and the Bold Future Award. For both, the criteria to be nominated are to demonstrate entrepreneurial daring, to successfully reinvent traditions and to maintain an ethical business approach.
