“We believe in women entrepreneurs, their personal power and their power in the marketplace. This is why we have launched our inaugural Fellows Competition. We will identify ten Fellows to become ambassadors for women entrepreneurs and to receive access to capital, education, mentorship and networking.”
FELLOWS WILL WIN:
3-DAY WORKSHOP AT TORY BURCH
$10,000 GRANT FOR BUSINESS EDUCATION
ONE FELLOW WILL RECEIVE A $100,000
Applications will be accepted from November 2015 through January 12, 2016.
30 finalists will be featured on the Tory Burch Foundation site and the public will vote for their favorite entrepreneur.
Ten Fellows will be selected according to our evaluation criteria which includes online voting. In June 2016, the Fellows will participate in a three-day workshop in New York City hosted at the Tory Burch Headquarters. This will include mentorship, keynote speakers and an opportunity to meet Tory.
Additionally, Fellows will participate in a pitch competition before a panel of judges to determine one winner for a grant investment of $100,000. The ten Fellows will then be part of a one-year program that provides business guidance from the Tory Burch Foundation.
