Entrepreneurial Winning Women - 2012 - EY - United States

Entrepreneurial Winning Women™Accelerating the growth of women-owned businesses

About the program

The fifth annual EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women Program is a national competition and executive leadership program that identifies a select group of high-potential women entrepreneurs whose businesses show real potential to scale — and then helps them do it.

Entrepreneurial Winning Women join an elite business network of the country’s best high-growth companies and participate in a customized executive leadership program with year-round activities designed to:

  • Expand their knowledge with the latest information, research and executive dialogues about business strategies and practices.
  • Identify potential partners, strategic alliances, customers and suppliers as well as prospective sources of private capital.
  • Provide access to informal, one-to-one guidance and support.
  • Strengthen their executive leadership and business skills and identify opportunities to grow through meetings with senior advisors and seasoned entrepreneurs.
  • Increase national and regional visibility for themselves and their companies among corporate executives, investors and the media.

“This program totally changed my definition of 'big' and opened my eyes to the true growth potential for our company. I'm thinking entirely differently about how we measure being the market leader.”
