It is leadership training within the context of working for an equal and sustainable society using entrepreneurial principles, and the programme is based on real business experiences and collaborative learning. At the heart of the programme is personal and professional development. The aim of the She Entrepreneurs is to support women entrepreneurs by giving them the tools and methods they need to develop their enterprise.

The She Entrepreneurs is intended for women who have already started to build a business. If you are an entrepreneur who wants to develop your business to make it more effective at creating value for society  – the She Entrepreneurs is the programme for you.

She Entrepreneurs will give you:

  • The opportunity to develop your business initiative and acquire personal skills and innovative tools.
  • Support to think like an entrepreneur – from generating ideas to executing a strategic and sustainable business model.
  • Increased knowledge on topics such as business development, communication, branding, sales, finance and funding.
  • Individual feedback on your business initiative from leading entrepreneurs and group mentors in Sweden and MENA. This feedback will give you the chance to rethink and fine-tune your idea.
