From June 4 to July 31, Cartier will be accepting applications for the 2021 edition of the Cartier Women’s Initiative and you could very well be one of the lucky women chosen.

Since 2006, Cartier, in partnership with INSEAD Business School, has been aiming to shine a light on women entrepreneurs and provide them with the necessary financial, social, and human capital support to grow their business and build their leadership skills.

The annual international entrepreneurship programme is open to women-run and women-owned businesses from any country and sector that aims to have a strong and sustainable social and/or environmental impact.

Since its creation, the programme has accompanied 240 promising female entrepreneurs hailing from 56 different countries and has awarded over 3 million USD to support their businesses.

The programme is expanding with the creation of a new award in order to further increase the programme’s impact and relevance, starting from the 2021 edition–and on top of the 7 existing regional awards–three more women impact entrepreneurs will be recognized.

They will be awarding the Science & Technology Pioneer Award, a new thematic category to support women impact entrepreneurs at the forefront of scientific and technological innovation.

Each of the 8 laureates will be awarded with a US $100,000 in grant; whereas each of the second and third runner-ups will receive US $30,000. Finally, the 8 laureates and 16 finalists will all receive support on strategic financial thinking, one-on-one strategy mentoring, media visibility, and international networking opportunities, as well as the opportunity to join an INSEAD executive education programme on scaling social impact.
