EY is currently accepting applications for its Entrepreneurial Winning Women program. Now in its ninth year, EWW is a national competition and executive leadership program that targets women entrepreneurs who own businesses that have potential to scale. The program offers year-round educational and networking opportunities for the women entrepreneurs who are selected.
Applicants must be at least a 51 percent owner and founding CEO of a privately held, for-profit business in the U.S. or Canada that is less than 10 years old. If a company was co-founded by multiple women, they may apply as a group. Additionally, the company must have at least $2 million in sales for each of the last two fiscal years. Former EY Entrepreneur Of The Year Award winners are ineligible.
The applications will be reviewed by a panel of independent judges that includes successful entrepreneurs, investors and business leaders. Up to 12 Entrepreneurial Winning Women will be selected. Applications are due by June 9, and selections will be made by September 8, 2017.
The program is supported by Babson College, Golden Seeds, The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, the National Association of Women Business Owners, Women’s Business Enterprise National Council and Women Presidents’ Organization.
