EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women
Boosting women-owned businesses to achieve accelerated growth
The EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women™ Program is an annual 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. Currently in its ninth year, the North America program is open to businesses in the US and Canada.
Three Canadian entrepreneurs inducted into 2016 class of EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women™
- Jennifer Kelly, Petit Pehr, Toronto, Ontario
- Rebecca Perren, Petit Pehr, Toronto, Ontario
- Mabel Lee, Velour Lashes, Toronto, Ontario
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.
