The Cartier Women's Initiative Awards are an international business plan competition for women created in 2006 by Cartier and the Women's Forum with the support of the consulting firm McKinsey & Company and INSEAD business school. Six female entrepreneurs, one per continent, are awarded annually.
Each of them receives coaching support for a full year, a $20,000 grant and an exclusive Trophy designed by Cartier.
The competition comprises two rounds: the selection of the Finalists in June based on their short business plans and the selection of the Laureates in October based on their detailed business plans.
The six laureates of the 2012 Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards were announced on October 11 at the Women’s Forum for the Economy and Society in Deauville.
The eighteen 2012 finalists will be present at the Women’s Forum Global Meeting, and the six winners of the Awards will be announced October 11. They will receive $20,000 of funding.
Cartier, in partnership with the Women’s Forum, INSEAD Business School and McKinsey & Co., today announced the finalists of the 2012 Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards.
Sharing the concern and the will to address women entrepreneurs’ needs, Cartier has worked hand in hand with the Women’s Forum since 2006.
