Since 2006, the Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards has supported over a 100 female entrepreneurs worldwide. It is an international business plan competition created by Cartier, the Women’s Forum, McKinsey & Company and INSEAD business school to identify, support and encourage projects by women entrepreneurs. It aims to encourage the most vulnerable category of entrepreneurs in their most vulnerable phase: women entrepreneurs starting up.
It seeks to: (1) identify and support initial-phase women entrepreneurs through funding and coaching, (2) foster the spirit of enterprise by celebrating role models in entrepreneurship, and (3) create an international network of women entrepreneurs and encourage peer networking.
The Cartier Women’s Initiative Award is looking for committed female entrepreneurs heading initiatives with the potential to grow significantly in the years to come. The project should be in the first stages of its development with at least two years of operations and sales to account for but no older than 3 years.
Actions can take place worldwide.
