The Veuve Clicquot Business Woman Award was held in Croatia


Four beautiful ladies were nominated for the prestigious award this year, and one of them, designer Aleksandra Dojčinović, was declared the winner.


The Veuve Clicquot Business Woman Award was held in the beautiful ambience of the Croatian Institute of History in Opatička Street. The four nominated ladies, Kristina Ercegović, Alis Marić, Aleksandra Dojčinović and Ivana Matić, who competed for this year's award during their careers, stood out for their diligence, original ideas, and set the bar higher in the standards of business challenges, just like Madame Clicquot.

The Veuve Clicquot Business Woman Award is a kind of Oscar, awarded every year to successful business women around the world, and was founded in 1972 in honor of Madame Clicquot, an exceptional business woman, a Frenchwoman adorned with courage and a prominent entrepreneurial spirit. In 1798, Madame Clicquot married the successful champagne producer François Clicquot, and when she was left a widow at the age of 27, she took over the business, becoming the first woman to head the company. She showed entrepreneurial spirit in 1810 when she produced the first vintage wine in the Champagne region.
