Cartier Women’s Initiative 2023 Is Now Open For Registration

International entrepreneurship program Cartier Women’s Initiative launches its call for applications for their 2023 edition.

Founded in 2006, Cartier Women’s Initiative seeks to drive change by empowering women impact entrepreneurs, providing them with financial, social and human capital support to grow their business and build their leadership skills. The Cartier Women’s Initiative (CWI) aims to encourage inspirational women entrepreneurs worldwide to solve contemporary global challenges by supporting and recognizing creative women who are making concrete contributions to finding solutions for the future of our planet, and by bringing these business solutions to the largest audience possible.

Aimed to have a sustainable social and/or environmental impact, this annual international entrepreneurship program is open to women-run and women-owned businesses from any country and sector. Following the celebration of its 15th anniversary on International Women’s Day at the World Expo in Dubai last March, Cartier Women’s Initiative has been looking for ways to extend opportunities to more impact entrepreneurs around the world and ensure the program evolves alongside new developments in their global ecosystem.

For over 16 years, Cartier Women’s Initiative has since supported 262 women changemakers hailing from 62 countries and has awarded a total of $6,440,000 in grant to support their businesses, all driven by a common conviction: Solving the most pressing global challenges.

Furthermore, the event will provide the platform and opportunity for women entrepreneurs to learn more about the CWI, and strengthen local and regional connections.

In 2023, the program is expanding with the creation of new Regional and Thematic Awards.
Regional Awards: 2 new regional categories, Francophone Sub-Saharan Africa and Oceania are created to complete the already existing 7 regional awards.
Thematic Awards: In addition to the Science & Technology Pioneer award launched in 2021, a new thematic award, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Award is created to encourage entrepreneurial solutions designed to close gaps of access, outcome or opportunities for communities that have been underrepresented or underserved.
While the other regional and thematic awards of the Cartier Women’s Initiative focus on supporting women, this pilot award is open to all genders.

Interested parties may apply now on Cartier Women’s Initiative website before June 30th, 2022 8am Malaysia time.
