Apply! Cartier Women Initiative Award 2015
Application Deadline: 27 February 2015
The +Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards are an international business plan competition created in 2006 by Cartier, the Women’s Forum, +McKinsey & Company and INSEAD business school to identify, support and encourage projects by women entrepreneurs. A WEConnection won last year and she will be sharing her application experience at upcoming Weconnection events!
The mission of the Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards is threefold:
- To identify and support initial-phase women entrepreneurs through funding and coaching
- To foster the spirit of enterprise by celebrating role models in entrepreneurship
- To create an international network of women entrepreneurs and encourage peer networking
The Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards aim to encourage the most vulnerable category of entrepreneurs in their most vulnerable phase: women entrepreneurs starting up. Since their inception in 2006, they have accompanied over 140 promising female business-owners and recognized 44 Laureates.
It is interesting to note that in the 8 year CWIA history, the Laureates for Sub-Saharan Africa came from Nigeria in 2009, 2013 and 2014!
