TIAW Entrepreneurship Program
Each year more women discover the power of owning and growing their own businesses. For many it is a choice; for some, particularly in societies where career opportunities for women remain limited, it is the only option. Worldwide, the number of women-owned businesses is growing at a faster rate than male-owned businesses. While the majority of women entrepreneurs own very small businesses, many own larger enterprises, including sizeable corporations operating multi-nationally. Whatever the case, strong business acumen, perseverance and determination are what
distinguish successful women entrepreneurs and TIAW will leverage the impact of that expertise by making connections, sharing best practices and bringing women entrepreneurs together virtually and in person.
In keeping with the TIAW mission of fostering the economic independence and empowerment of women globally, the Entrepreneurship Program offers members the opportunity to acquire the knowledge, strategies, practical tools and networks needed to help them become successful entrepreneurs, wherever they may be. By way of program content, delivery and reach – using the web and other technologies -- we aim to support and add value to the programs our TIAW member associations already offer their members.
