Designer Tory Burch launched her company in 2004 at her kitchen table. Today the brand is worth over 3 billion dollars. Burch has seen such an enormous amount of success from her sales that she decided to start the Tory Burch Foundation to empower women entrepreneurs and has already given out $10 million dollars in loans.
Last week she launched the Tory Burch Foundation’s Fellows Program which will allow entrepreneurs the access to business education, mentoring and networking. Participants will receive a $10,000 grant to further their business education and will also have the chance to compete for an $100,000 grant investment.
Applications will be accepted from November 2015 through January 12, 2016 and finalists will be featured on the Tory Burch Foundation site and the public will vote for their favorite entrepreneur. Tory Burch says her foundation is not about charity, it’s about empowering women. Go here to apply.
