Global Startup Ecosystem (GSE) CEO Christine Ntim Selected As Tory Burch Foundation Fellow

New York, NY: Thursday, July 1, 2021 – The Tory Burch Foundation announced today the 50 early-stage women entrepreneurs selected for the 2021 class of the Tory Burch Foundation Fellows Program, now in its seventh year. Global Startup Ecosystem (GSE) CEO Christine Ntim was selected in this year’s cohort group. 

Receiving over a thousand applications, the Foundation selected a cohort of diverse small businesses for the year-long education program. ” Hailing from 18 states and Washington, D.C., and ranging in age from 24 to 60, the 2021 Fellows are diverse in every sense of the word. The top industries represented are retail, apparel, food/beverage and technology, with two entrepreneurs making strides in the male-dominated construction industry. Several of the companies represented are purpose-driven, with many focusing on sustainability initiatives. Fifty-eight percent are founders of color. 

The majority of the entrepreneurs have been in business less than five years, and considering that nearly half of all small businesses fail within those first five years, it is a critical time. In addition, women founders are less likely to pass $1 million in revenue. 

The Foundation is dedicated to helping the Fellows reach and surpass these key indicators of success.
