Women entrepreneurs have also been deeply impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite support and training programmes, a gap remains in the provision of supportive entrepreneurship conditions and opportunities to accelerate their ideas and ventures to the next level of business growth and beyond local markets.
In direct response to this gap, UN Women is organizing its first virtual regional Women’s Entrepreneurship Expo. The Expo platform will provide a unique opportunity for women entrepreneurs (new, start-ups and established) to connect with national, multinational and global companies, business investors, mentors and other partners, and vice versa.
This project is supported by the United Nations Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK) and is implemented by the New Social Initiative. Expressed opinions represent the authors’ views and do not necessarily reflect the views of the United Nations, UNMIK or New Social Initiative.
