Call for applications for Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards

6 Feb 2014

Cartier is calling for Irish women entrepreneurs to take part in an international business plan competition to identify, support and encourage projects by women entrepreneurs around the world.

The awards aim to encourage the most vulnerable category of entrepreneurs in their most vulnerable phase: women entrepreneurs starting up.

Interested female entrepreneurs heading initiatives with the potential to grow significantly in the years to come are encouraged to apply before the 28 February deadline of 10am Paris time (CET).

Since their inception in 2006, The Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards have accompanied more than 100 promising female business owners and recognised 32 Laureates.

For a project to be considered for the Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards, it must be an original for-profit business creation in the initial phase (1-3 years old) led by a woman. More details on the eligibility criteria are available online

The launch of the awards has been marked by a recent event held by DCU Ryan Academy in association with ThousandSeeds.
