WomenX: Unleashing the Competitiveness of Women Entrepreneurs

WomenX Pakistan is a pilot for a global World Bank program to support high-growth potential women entrepreneurs. The program is being implemented in Karachi, Lahore, and Peshawar by Enclude. Through the program, participating women business owners receive a package of services– including business and soft skills training, networking, peer-to-peer coaching activities, one-on-one mentoring, and specialized business clinics– that directly address the range of constraints restricting their growth. The program aims to develop entrepreneurs’ capacity to improve enterprise management and business performance outcomes, thereby stimulating job creation and contributing to economic growth.  At a macro level, the program fosters a more innovative and inclusive entrepreneurial eco-system for women entrepreneurs.  Find out more about the pilot in Karachi and the 160 women who have participated.

WomenX is accepting applications for Cohort 4 which is scheduled to start in January 2016.
