Description and results


This project aims to support young women and men to establish and grow sustainable market-driven businesses. It is designed to enable female-led and male-led start-up teams to develop their business ideas by providing them with entrepreneurship training and coaching that allows them to effectively pitch their ideas to investors and have a better chance to access seed capital funds, which are the initial capital used to start a business. The project also seeks to strengthen Leaders Organization’s ability to understand, respond and address gender equality barriers to entrepreneurship through its work and programs.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) reduced barriers to entrepreneurship faced by youth, in particular female youth; (2) enhanced opportunities for young entrepreneurs to successfully establish and grow their business; and (3) enhanced responsiveness of Leaders Organization to the challenges and barriers facing female entrepreneurs.
