The Mission

Providing growth-oriented women entrepreneurs with the right platform to expand their business.

SUPPORT

We recognize and support gender equality in the social, economic, and political spheres.

Through WEEP we commit ourselves to supporting Goal 5 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

 

The Vision

To enable and drive the business expansion efforts of women entrepreneurs.

 

Philosophy

Our philosophy is deeply tied to the following principles:

  • Participant results and outcomes are the primary focus, not monetizing;
  • Evolving programme services and delivery systems;
  • Actively monitoring, evaluating, and improving programme activities;
  • Active participant follow-up; and
  • Transparency.
 

Resources

Capacity Building

Training in general business topics including international business will be delivered through seminars with the overall aim of helping women entrepreneurs develop a strong framework to guide strategic-level planning.

Expert Business Advice

Expert business advice is provided through our capacity building efforts and our programme tracks.

Programme Tracks

Personalized assistance is delivered over a short period of time to qualified women-owned businesses through our programme tracks. That offer a blend of: one-on-one business strategy sessions; on-site business operation assessments and recommendations; as well as monthly advising sessions in support of the recommendations we provide.

Business Solutions

The business solutions offered through WEEP come in two flavors: 1) solutions extended by our parent company (e.g., the custom web design solution Essentials Lite) and 2) those exclusively designed for WEEP (e.g., the programme tracks).

As WEEP evolves to address the changing business environment and needs of women entrepreneurs. New solutions will be introduced in order to ensure women entrepreneurs are properly supported in their efforts to expand their business.
