Launched six years ago, the EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women program aims to help women entrepreneurs whose companies show great potential to scale big and become market leaders.
Since its inception, the program looks to help women entrepreneurs break through the barriers that keep thriving second-stage businesses from reaching their full potential.
Once selected, the entrepreneurs participate in an ongoing, customized program designed by EY to catalyze their companies' growth by building and fostering critical relationships, enhancing leadership skills, expanding business acumen and providing increased visibility.
