The goal is to empower people to learn investing by starting with the products and services they already know and love.

The Stevie Awards were created to recognize the achievements of organizations and business people worldwide. Created in 2004, the Stevie Awards for Women in Business is run by the American Business Awards. Last year’s winners included Maxine Clark, Founder and Chief Executive of Build-A-Bear Workshop Inc, recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award, and Heather Rooney, President of H2 Marketing, named Best Entrepreneur in Advertising, Marketing and Public Relations.
