ACADEMY FOR WOMEN ENTREPRENEURS

Founded in 2019, the Academy for Women Entrepreneurs (AWE) aims to empower women with the knowledge, networks, and access they need to launch and scale successful businesses. By promoting women’s economic opportunities and ensuring women have the capabilities and resources needed to participate in the economy, the AWE program directly supports the U.S. National Strategy on Gender Equity and Equality. Implemented in nearly 100 countries, AWE has helped an estimated 25,000 women entrepreneurs around the world grow their businesses and reach their full economic potential.

PROVIDE KNOWLEDGE

to women through in-person guided facilitation, U.S-style online education, and localized mentoring with alumni from U.S. exchange programs, business leaders, and other local partners.

FOSTER NETWORKS

that support AWE participants’ access to peer- to-peer mentorship, strategic business relationships, and scaling opportunities with businesses in the region and in the United States.

PROVIDE ACCESS

to educational and entrepreneurial resources through ongoing ECA programs and the Exchange Alumni network that will help women bring their business ideas to life.

AWE PARTICIPATION

AWE combines the online platform DreamBuilder with localized in-class mentoring
and facilitation. Through AWE, participants learn core business skills like strategic
planning, marketing, and financial management, and apply these skills both in and
out of the classroom with mentors from the local business community and U.S.
ExchangeAlumni network.
