The business you submit for the Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards should be designed to generate revenues. Non-profit project proposals are not accepted.
My project is a completely new concept, wholly conceived by the team: it is not a buy-back or a subsidiary of an existing firm.
The business you submit for the Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards is an original business idea. You cannot apply with a company you have bought, with the sister company or the subsidiary of an existing corporation (even if you are the founder of the mother company and the current company you are applying with is a separate legal entity).
My project is between 2 and 3 years old.
The business you submit for the Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards must be in its initial phase and have been founded between two (2) or three (3) years prior to the entry submission deadline, that is: the project should have been incorporated between August 2014 and August 2015. There is a flexibility of a few months regarding this criteria.
I am the founder of the project and I am a woman. I hold the main leadership position in the business.
The lead entrant represents the project in the Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards’ communication material (film, press, and website). She is the recipient of the coaching and the contact person for the competition. If a project is founded by a team, the lead entrant must hold the position of CEO, Chairman or President and own the highest or a significant share of the company. Two co-founders may represent a project, provided that they are both women.
In order to complete your application you will be asked to submit a digital version of your resume, a scanned copy of your company's registration, a proof of patent (if applicable) and detailed information on your company's financials.
Please make sure you have all of these requisites before starting your application as you will be asked for them in order to continue later on.
