Grant Description

The WEAmericas Accelerator project will replicate an existing, proven, and successful small-business accelerator project in Central America for women entrepreneurs over a three-year period. Through an accelerator project consisting of intensive training and advisory support for at least three cohorts of at least 75 total women entrepreneurs, the accelerator project will provide mentoring and counseling to women entrepreneurs from business experts, and offer an opportunity to present business plans to potential investors upon successful completion of the accelerator project. This project seeks to achieve a gender balance in the business environment in Central America and promote gender equality for women entrepreneurs in accessing training, mentorship opportunities, new markets, and capital, to develop and expand their business and networks.
