Last night the celebration of the entrepreneur was taken one step further with The Entrepreneur Behind the Icon, an event in Hollywood to honor some of the best celebrity business people, including Frankel.
The Kardashians received the Next Gen Entrepreneur Award. The family has taken a massive amount of press attention and turned it into a thriving business that The Hollywood Reporter estimates brought in $65 million last year. With reality shows, fragrances and fashion lines, the Kardashians embody the new celebrity entrepreneur.
