Womenpreneur Tour Film 2020

01.04.2020 / Created by WI

This documentary - produced in collaboration between Womenpreneur-Initiative and SANAD entrepreneurship  Academy - gathers some of the greatest minds of women entrepreneurs in Morocco, Tunisia and Jordan. The two organisations travelled across these countries in November and December 2019 to meet, interview and map female tech entrepreneurs and digital talents. 

In the MENA region, women are over 50% of the population: their inclusion and participation in the economy, in all aspects of society is essential. However, women are still suffering from:

  • Lack of opportunities
  • Limited access to fair and equal education
  • Inadequate access to funding and investments
  • Unfair family and tax policies

and much more.

The "Womenpreneur Tour" initiative aims to promote female entrepreneurship in the Middle East and North Africa region, particularly in the fields of technology, digitalisation and innovation. 

Watch as these inspiring women in the Tech Ecosystem share their stories, the challenges they face, the outcomes, advices and aspirations.
