50 women entrepreneurs, 15 speakers, 4 days and one incredible #ToryBurchFellows week.


This year, the Foundation selected 50 women-owned businesses to the #ToryBurchFellows Program. Each of these early-stage entrepreneurs received a year-long Fellowship, a $5,000 grant for business education as well as access to the Foundation’s online peer-to-peer network.


Dynamic leaders including authors Seth Godin and Kelly Hoey, Instagram’s Emilie Fife, PureWow’s Chief Content Officer Mary Kate McGrath, and The Muse Co-founder & CEO Kathryn Minshew shared their expertise with our entrepreneurs during four days of workshops at the Tory Burch Office. Plus the founders visited Google, Hearst, New York Stock Exchange, Spotify, and Whole Foods. The week culminated with a pitch day where twelve women entrepreneurs presented their businesses to investors and influencers. 


From sustainable fashion to cybersecurity, the Fellows’ businesses are equally diverse, innovative and remarkable. Learn more about these entrepreneurs:
