Women business owners invited to sign onto economic empowerment project

Business women across St Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG), are being invited to join the ‘Economically Empowered Women for Equitable and Resilient Societies’ Women Economic Empowerment (WEE) Project.

The invitation comes from the Organization of American States (OAS), through its Executive Secretariat for Integral Development (SEDI), in collaboration with the government of St. Vincent and the Grenadines through the Centre for Enterprise Development Inc. (CED), a release from the CED said.

The OAS WEE Project, on April 17, opened its call for expression of interest for women-owned businesses to apply for selection.

Under the project, St. Vincent and the Grenadines is among six countries to benefit from activities that will aid female entrepreneurs in participating in the digital economy.

Women entrepreneurs in the start-up, near-market-ready and market-ready categories are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunities that will be made available under this project to enhance their capacity to build an online presence and access the digital economy, international markets, cutting edge information on relevant topics for business development and mentoring opportunities. They will also receive support from the National Working Group in country and partner institutions to enhance their business.

The CED is urging women entrepreneurs to take advantage of this opportunity and register at: https://forms.gle/i2wqTUALmJLRcjjs9 before the deadline of April 27, 2023.
