EMPOWERING WOMEN ENTREPRENEURS TOWARDS A GREEN TRANSITION
Launched in March 2021 by the Women’s Forum for the Economy & Society, in partnership with Procter & Gamble and HEC Paris Innovation & Entrepreneurship Center, Empowering Women Entrepreneurs 4 Good was imagined as a concrete solution to the negative impacts of the crisis on Empowering Women Entrepreneurs.
The initiative is a unique accelerator programme that supports green entrepreneurs at the early stages of their journey. The 7-month online programme equips women entrepreneurs with unique resources and capabilities to innovate and grow their businesses by providing coaching, visibility, technical support, exposure and access to an ecosystem of stakeholders and global partners.
After the success of the first edition, The Women’s Forum is now launching the second edition of WomenEntrepreneurs4Good to support projects led by strong women creating a better future for all. And second edition means double the impact!
BE PART OF THE IMPACT!
Our program is designed to support selected ventures to further build on their impact-oriented solutions, and prepare them for pitching and fundraising from impact investors and philanthropists.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE
