Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards 2012
The Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards is 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.
