Swedish Institute’s She Entrepreneurs Program Now Accepting Applications

Women in MENA who are social entrepreneurs can apply for a slot in the leadership programme next year, half of which takes place in Sweden - with all expenses covered.

There’s a new opportunity for women who are social entrepreneurs - the Swedish Institute’s She Entrepreneurs programme is back, and accepting applications. The leadership programme offers business-related mentorship, training, and networking opportunities to aspiring business leaders motivated for social good. It’ll help women build their business toolboxes and get to see a little of the world while they’re at it. The programme is part of the Swedish Institute’s outreach efforts in the MENA region.

Applications for the programme are open from September 8th to October 4th to women from all across the MENA and Sweden, and is set to take place in two modules: one week-long portion in Sweden next March; and another week in another location in mid-September 2018. All travel and expenses will be covered by the initiative.

Eligible applicants are between ages 20 and 26, have an up-and-running social business initiative, and speak English. More information and the application link can be found here.
