EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women
Think big and be bold
The EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women™ program, now celebrating its 10th anniversary, helps a select group of women founders rapidly accelerate their growth. Through an annual competition and ongoing program, the entrepreneurs are introduced to new ways of managing business growth via a powerful combination of executive education, networking, mentorship and connections.
If you are a woman CEO who has founded a company within the last 10 years in the US or Canada, and has achieved at least US$2 million in revenue in each of the last two years, we invite you to compete to become one of the 2017 EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women.
You’ll join an elite business network of the country’s best high-growth company leaders and participate in a customized leadership program designed to help you accelerate and sustain the growth of your business.

Those selected for the Entrepreneurial Winning Women Program are exposed to entrepreneurs, investors and advisors who can help them and are coached on the five crucial actions needed to scale their companies:
- Think big and be bold
- Build a public profile
- Work on the business, rather than in it
- Establish key advisory networks
- Evaluate financing for expansion
The Entrepreneurial Winning Women Program encompasses ongoing educational programs, events, networks and media exposure — on both national and regional levels — designed to provide actionable guidance, contacts, tools and resources for leadership development and business growth. The program is evergeen. Entrepreneurs selected to participate are welcome to remain engaged in Entrepreneurial Winning Women for as long as it benefits them.
