FAQs

Who can apply for FFE?

Future Female Entrepreneur has been created by the Two Chicks Empowerment Fund to inspire the next generation of female entrepreneurs. We are therefore inviting applications from women ages 18-24.

It’s not possible for FFE participants to choose which of our FFE business owners they will spend the day with. However, our application questions ask for details about applicants’ backgrounds, experiences and ambitions, so that we can make relevant matches. Matches will be decided in good faith by the Directors of Two Chicks only. Women who have agreed to host an FFE participant will not be involved in the FFE selection process. All of our FFE business owners have been personally invited to take part in FFE, and share our values to inspire the next generation of female entrepreneurs.

Whilst we can’t provide a detailed plan for each FFE participant, all of our FFE business owners have committed to a varied schedule that offers unique insights into what it takes to create and lead a business.
