Entrepreneurship

Unleashing women’s potential, within the labor force, and as entrepreneurs, is increasingly recognized as an immense, multidimensional and multitrillion dollar global opportunity: economically empowering women, driving growth and innovation, enhancing corporate performance, boosting economies and driving socioeconomic and environmental progress.

WEI’s role in catalyzing women’s entrepreneurship covers a spectrum of activities: support for women-owned/-led enterprises from concept/start-up to operation and scaling up for impact, as well as actions to foster a favorable entrepreneurship ecosystem for women’s enterprise and innovation.
