Female entrepreneurs selected by EY, forming 2024 cohort.

Ernst & Young (EY) has named 18 female entrepreneurs to become members of the EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women™ Asia-Pacific class of 2024. The bespoke executive programme, which was launched in 2008, identifies and champions a select group of entrepreneurs with high potential and who have built profitable companies.

According to EY, the programme will provide these entrepreneurs with the connections and resources needed to unlock their potential and scale their companies sustainably.

This year’s cohort focused on entrepreneurs specialising in crucial global challenges. 

“This programme aims to help empower female entrepreneurs, dismantling obstacles and propelling them towards global leadership. We champion women’s successes not only on designated occasions but consistently offering our unwavering support to fuel their aspirations and foster a brighter tomorrow for all,” says Claire Cardno, EY Asia-Pacific Risk Management Leader and EY Asia-Pacific Women Fast Forward Executive Sponsor.
