TAKING INITIATIVE: Cartier is seeking applications for its 2013 Women’s Initiative Awards, a business plan competition aimed at supporting creative, financially sustainable and responsible women-led companies, in all countries and industries. The 18 best finalists from around the world will receive coaching and media exposure and will be invited to France for the finale week, which includes a presentation in front of the international jury, entrepreneurship workshops and the global meeting of the Women’s Forum.

The six eventual winners, chosen from six geographical regions, will receive one year of coaching, $20,000 in funding, media visibility and networking opportunities.

Now in its eighth year, the awards are held in partnership with the Women’s Forum, INSEAD Business School and McKinsey & Co. Hopeful entrepreneurs with projects between one and three years old should apply with a short business plan using the online application form before March 8 at Cartierwomensinitiative.com.
