Now Accepting Nominations for the Crunchbase 2023 Influential Women in Sales List

Update: Submissions for the Crunchbase 2023 Influential Women in Sales List are now closed. The selected nominees will be announced on the Crunchbase Blog the first week of March.

We’re excited to shine a spotlight on the women who are leaders, innovators and changemakers in the sales industry. To celebrate these women and share their achievements with the world, we called for submissions from our community. In the coming months, we’ll pull from these submissions to highlight rising leaders in the sales space who are driving innovation and business growth, offer a unique background and perspective and are committed to equity and diversity in sales and beyond.


When do submissions open and close?

Submissions will be open from October 18, 2022 through December 20, 2022. 

When will the list be published?

The Crunchbase 2023 Influential Women in Sales List will be published in March 2023, in celebration of Women’s History Month.

Can I nominate someone other than myself?

Yes. Feel free to either nominate yourself or another woman in sales.

Can I apply if I’m gender non-conforming?

We understand that gender isn’t binary. While this particular list aims to highlight and celebrate those who identify as women, we’re always looking to feature diverse voices on the Crunchbase Blog. If you’re a gender non-conforming person in the sales industry and are interested in being featured on the Crunchbase Blog, we’d love to hear from you. Please reach out via our blog contributor form

What makes someone a strong candidate?

We look at several different factors when selecting candidates. These include innovation, business impact, social impact, diversity and leadership. We also look for candidates who exhibit Crunchbase values, which include taking initiative, doing good and demonstrating open-mindedness and curiosity.

How do I know if I’ve been accepted?

We will review submissions in January and February of 2023. At that time, we will notify you and the nominee if your nomination is accepted. We will give all nominees the chance to review the content before publication. 

Do I get a confirmation message when I apply?

Yes, all applications will receive a confirmation message on this page after submitting a response.
