The team at EAE Business School would like to bring your attention to the Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards, an international business plan competition created in 2006 by Cartier, the Women’s Forum, McKinsey & Company and INSEAD business school with the aim of identifying, supporting and promoting projects by women entrepreneurs.
These Awards have a threefold mission:
- Identifying and supporting initial-phase women entrepreneurs through funding and coaching
- Fostering the spirit of enterprise by celebrating role models in entrepreneurship
- Creating an international network of women entrepreneurs and encourage peer networking
The Cartier Women's Initiative Awards aim to help and encourage female entrepreneurs in their most vulnerable phase: starting up. Since their inception in 2006, they have accompanied over 140 female business-owners, working year after year with the most promising women entrepreneurs.
Run in various phases, factors that are evaluated in the competition include the quality of the business plan and the persuasive capacity of their oral presentation, among others.
The lucky winners of the Award receive a comprehensive support package for their business plan, with funding of $20,000, a year of coaching, networking opportunities and media exposure.
EAE Business School promotes and supports participation in initiatives of this kind and, as such, we encourage our students to take part. Anybody interested in doing so should send and email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is certainly a great opportunity for any female entrepreneurs who want to start making a name for themselves in the professional world.
