APEC Women-Led Start-Up Accelerator Workshop

Activity Description

Women play an important part in entrepreneurial development. Around 38% of the SMEs in the APEC region are owned by women. Among all the difficulties that women entrepreneurs face, the lack of access to markets and capital are often not addressed.Echoing the APEC 2020 theme of Optimising Human Potential Towards a Future of Shared Prosperity, the main focus of this project seeks to enhance the capability of female entrepreneurs and women-led startups on securing their access to finance and market opportunities.
