Red Club x Cartier Announces Grant For Young Entrepreneurs
Aspiring entrepreneurs and founders, now’s your time to shine. Cartier is officially accepting applications for its 2023 Young Leader Award, which will spotlight entrepreneurs ages 20 to 40 who are working to provide more accessible, inclusive, and effective healthcare solutions for underrepresented communities.
“It is both Cartier’s responsibility and privilege to support and amplify the efforts of the young social entrepreneurs, who serve as catalysts for change,” Cyrille Vigneron, president and chief executive of Cartier International, said in a press release. “This young generation of impact entrepreneurs truly inspires us.”
The application period for the 2023 cohort lasts from Oct. 31, 2022, to Jan. 31, 2023. Four finalists will be selected in April 2023, and the final award recipient will be revealed during the Young Leader Award Ceremony in New York City in June 2023. The winner will receive a €50,000 grant; the three runners-up will each take home €10,000. The 2023 Young Leader Award recipient will also participate in a specialized mentorship program provided by the Young Leader Award academic partners, Georgetown University, and Howard University.

The community initially launched in Paris, Milan, and London, and has since extended to Moscow and Tokyo in 2021 and then to Sydney, Barcelona, Singapore, Dubai, Taipei, and North America in 2022.
