Womenpreneur Initiative aims to create a shift within MENA societies in general, but also in the entrepreneurial tech landscape. By connecting female talents, offering an inspiring platform, organizing revolutionary discussions, and providing impactful solutions on challenges women and especially women entrepreneurs face, we aim to accelerate the development of women, communities and the entrepreneurial system. We increase awareness about the status quo of women and reconstruct foundational beliefs and ideas on gender issues in order to close the gender gap, particularly in innovation and technology.
In short: Our goal is the advancement of women and the creation of a lasting change within society and the entrepreneurial tech landscape.

The insights gained are also basis for a policy paper that draws attention to the main challenges female entrepreneurs face and offers impactful solutions.
