Cartier Women's Initiative Awards

Meet the Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards 2014 finalists

The Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards is an annual international business plan competition which rewards six female entrepreneurs, each representing a major world region: Latin America, North America, Europe, Sub-Saharan Africa, Middle East & North Africa, and Asia-Pacific. Selected from over 1,900 applications, this year’s finalists come from countries as far apart as Thailand, Ghana and Brazil. These finalists are now receiving coaching by McKinsey and INSEAD mentors to prepare for the second round of the competition. They will be required to submit a detailed business plan and give an oral presentation to the jury during the annual Women’s Forum Global Meeting in Deauville from October 15th to 17th, 2014. The Laureates will be recognized at the awards ceremony on October 16th and receive $20,000 in funding, one year of individual coaching, media visibility and networking opportunities.
