To take advantage of this extraordinary opportunity, applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • Women business owners who are the founding CEOs (at least a 51% owner) of any privately held company in the US or Canada. For those with outside capital, the founding woman entrepreneur may still apply if she retains a majority ownership stake of what is left after deducting all outside investments.
  • The company must be less than 10 years old.
  • The company must have reported at least US$2 million in sales during each of the past two fiscal years. Typical applicant company revenue ranges from US$2 million to approximately US$20 million annually.

Applicants who are selected must be able to attend and fully participate in the following two events:

  • An intensive two-day orientation and coaching session to be held in New York City on 15-16 October 2015
  • EY Strategic Growth Forum, 11–15 November 2015, in Palm Springs, California

Attendance at orientation and Strategic Growth Forum is mandatory. Those unable to commit may be better served not applying.
