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. 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 selection of the finalists and laureates of the competition is done by an independent international jury of entrepreneurs, investors, business executives and other profiles engaged in the support of female entrepreneurship. The Cartier Women’s Initiative Award offers funding, coaching, networking opportunities and exposure. It is a unique opportunity for early-phase women entrepreneurs to take their companies to the next level.

Winners will receive US $20,000 in funding. The full year of coaching focuses primarily on business development.

Application Deadline: March 8 2013.
