Fortune has selected the 2014 class of Fortune Most Promising Women Entrepreneurs. These are 10 female founders of thriving, innovative, groundbreaking companies with revenue in the $1 million-to-$25 million range. Fortune readers and members of our Most Powerful Women community nominated more than 150 applicants, and a team of editors—Senior Editor at Large Pattie Sellers, Assistant Managing Editor Leigh Gallagher and I—reviewed the impressive applications and winnowed the field to these 10 winners:

These women will attend the 2014 Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit, October 6-8 in Laguna Niguel, CA.
