We help release the potential of women entrepreneurs, so they can redefine the future. With our support, women and girls start and grow successful businesses – and reclaim the rights and freedoms they are too often denied. As a result, they earn a better living – but that’s only the beginning. Families flourish. Communities prosper. Attitudes shift. Economies grow. And women move the world in a whole new direction.
For every woman and girl who has discovered the power of being an entrepreneur, so many more are held back. They are denied the knowledge, skills and self-belief an entrepreneur needs. They are doubted by those around them. They can’t access the credit or resources a business depends on to succeed.
If women had the same opportunities to be entrepreneurs as men, global GDP could rise by up to $5 trillion.
Our role is to help women and girls break through those barriers. With our partners around the world, we offer training, mentoring and knowledge. We open doors to finance, markets, contacts and networks. We use technology to help women connect, learn and push boundaries. We press for change to stop women entrepreneurs being held back.
Working with us, women entrepreneurs change lives, minds and the world around us. We see their unstoppable impact every day – and we stop at nothing to help it grow.
