Is your company women-owned?

Then the Business Journal wants to hear from you.

We’re looking for Orange County-based companies that are at least 51% women-owned for our upcoming list of women-owned businesses.

Publicly traded companies and subsidiaries won’t be considered, nor will locally owned offices of national services firms.

The list will be ranked by revenue for the 12 months ended December 2012. It will be the centerpiece of a special report in our July 8 issue. The deadline for nominations is June 28.

Companies must have minimum sales of $5 million.

We urge you to submit your company for consideration.

What’s in it for you?

Bragging rights, for one. Your company could be ranked on our growing list and be part of a network of remarkable women in various industries.

The list also is good exposure for your company before customers, bankers, vendors, peers or even potential investors.

The Business Journal has an online form for companies to fill out for consideration.

Go to to nominate your company or another. Or contact Research Director Dana Truong at (949) 833-8373, ext. 247, or at
