In November last year, we informed about the launch of the Womenpreneur Tour, aiming to highlight Women's role in the Arab innovation ecosystem.
When it comes to access to entrepreneurship, women face multiple constraints in the MENA region. Womenpreneur Tour aimed to promote the participation of women in technology, entrepreneurship and digital innovation. The joint initiative of SANAD Entrepreneurship Academy and Womenpreneur Initiative took place between November and December 2019. Presenting itself as an awareness campaign, Womenpreneur Tour met and interviewed 30 female entrepreneurs in Morocco, Tunisia and Jordan. These women shared their challenges, outcomes and aspirations related to their journeys as entrepreneurs, as well as provide their advices for future generation of female entrepreneurs.
Women’s participation and inclusion in societies’ development is one of the pillars of the North-South Centre. In this sense, as institutional supporter, the North-South Centre encourages initiatives such as this, promoting inclusive growth and women’s engagement in innovation, technology and entrepreneurship.
A video documentary of the tour is available here.
