HerVenture in Vietnam
Our business skills app HerVenture has been available to download in Vietnam since 2018.
HerVenture is one of the Foundation’s three flagship programmes. The business skills mobile learning app provides women entrepreneurs of micro and small enterprises with the knowledge and skills to successfully grow their businesses. It has reached more than 50,000 women to date.
The app offers essential business training and support on the go. It features nine learning tracks on a range of topics, including launching a business, accessing finance, expanding market access and e-commerce. In Vietnam, the app is available in Vietnamese.
Our HerVenture app in Vietnam has been available since 2018, when it was piloted for the first time before being rolled out all over the world. The app’s continued success is made possible thanks to our partners, Qualcomm Wireless Reach and WISE Vietnam (Women’s Initiative for Startups and Entrepreneurship). We deliver the programme as part of the DevelopHer initiative.
From 2020-2021 HerVenture in Vietnam was supported by the WEAVE initiative, which was designed use mobile and online learning to bring entrepreneurship skills to over 15,000 women in Vietnam & Indonesia. This initiative, delivered with our partners Qualcomm Wireless Reach and WISE (Vietnam), was supported by funding from the Women’s Global Development and Prosperity (W-GDP) Initiative. The contract was awarded by the ASEAN-USAID Inclusive Growth in ASEAN through Innovation, Trade, and E-Commerce (ASEAN-USAID IGNITE) program, a USAID-funded activity.
From July 2021 onwards, HerVenture remains available in Vietnam as part of the DevelopHer initiative.
