New York, NY: Tuesday, May 21, 2019 – The Tory Burch Foundation today announced the 50 early-stage women entrepreneurs selected for the fourth-annual Tory Burch Foundation Fellows Program. Responding to incredible demand and thousands of applications annually, the flagship program expanded this year to reach even more women business owners with a significant increase from the previous cohort size of ten women entrepreneurs.
The entrepreneurs participate in a year-long fellowship, receive access to the Foundation’s online peer-to-peer network, and a $5,000 grant for business education.
In June, the Fellows will spend four days at the Tory Burch offices for workshops and mentoring with business leaders from Google, Spotify, Whole Foods and more. A select group of entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to pitch their business to industry influencers and investors.
Since launching the Fellows Program in 2015, the Tory Burch Foundation has provided over half a million dollars in grants to early-stage women entrepreneurs.
“In the United States, nearly a fifth of all startups will fail their first year and almost half by year five,” said Laurie Fabiano, President of the Tory Burch Foundation. “The Fellows Program provides the resources and network women-owned businesses need during this critical growth period.”
