Women in business
Entrepreneurship Prize (MFE)
The Ministère des Finances et de l’Économie (MFE) awards two cash prizes of $2000 to regional winners enrolled in vocational or technical training.
Femmessor, a group of economic development organizations dedicated to women's entrepreneurship, also offer the two prizewinners access to the following professional services: front-line services, coaching and consultation, training, networking options and funding opportunities for business projects.
The candidate’s portfolio must include her letter of introduction and her answers to the following questions :
- Describe your business plan and the steps you must take to carry it out.
- What are your goals and ambitions with respect to starting your own business?
- What entrepreneurial skills of yours will enable you to carry out this project?
