The Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards 2014 - do you have what it takes?
Deadline at the end of February
The Cartier Women's Initiative Awards are an international business competition that was started back in 2006 in a collaboration by Cartier, The Women's Forum, McKinsey & Company and INSEAD Business School.
The awards aim to identify and support female entrepreneurs through funding and coaching and to enable an international group of smart and successful women. The final call to apply for this prestigious program has been announced, encouraging talented female entrepreneurs in the Middle East region (and around the world) to follow their dreams.
The annual competition involves two rounds in which a jury of 30 high-profile individuals select 18 finalists that represent the best projects worldwide.
One successful laureate for each of the six regions will receive a generous support package of $20,000 funding, networking opportunities, publicity and coaching from top business experts.
To enter the awards, entrepreneurs should submit a short business plan using the online application form. The projects must be between 1 and 3 years old.
Applications for the 2014 edition of the awards are now open with the deadline on February 28, 2014 at 10am Paris time (CET). Apply online here.
