What Is the NEXT Initiative?
This is a ten-year commitment Women's Fund has made to help emerging adult women (ages 18-24) move from economic instability to economic stability. We will find viable solutions to help these vulnerable young women become strong independent women who are not dependent on the goodwill of other for their success.
What Is the NEXT Incubator?
This is an opportunity for selected entrepreneurs to spend 1-2 years incubating solutions for the NEXT population. Once the solutions are ready to launch, Women's Fund will fund the solution to the end of ten years.
