Beginner Entrepreneur Mentoring for Women was a pilot project, run between September 2019 and July 2020.
We worked with one individual and two groups of women from diverse backgrounds in three rounds of mentoring sessions. Based on the participants’ highly positive feedback to our responsive, hands-on methodology, we have concluded that flexibility and adaptability of its design is the formula to truly benefit women with entrepreneurial ambitions, regardless of their origins, circumstances and needs.
The experiences and insight gained in the programme created the basis for launching Entrepreneurship Essentials for Women – an intensive training course for aspiring entrepreneurs, where participants work directly on a project they are planning to launch.
The pilot also underpinned the development of Entrepreneurs Training and Mentoring Circle for Women – a comprehensive classroom-based training programme, for which we are currently seeking funding.
