ABOUT

Womenpreneur Tour 2019

Womenpreneur tour, a joint initiative of SANAD Entrepreneurship Academy and Womenpreneur Organization, was created to map and visit the female talents in technology, innovation and entrepreneurship to assess the current state of the entrepreneurial ecosystem in the MENA region in order to facilitate investment in women and girls, in form of capital, resources, mentorship and advocacy.

During the tour, we will visit the disruptive actors in the Arab ecosystem, meet with female technology experts and digital innovators, both to learn from their experiences and challenges, and share their stories.

This tour is a useful tool to understand what is needed and missing to foster female entrepreneurship, analysing the challenges that can be addressed through specific interventions. Identifying the reasons behind women’s lack of access to funding and opportunities in the market and the barriers that they encounter, is a precondition for the future growth of the ecosystem.

WHY?

multiple constraints in the MENA (Middle East North Africa) region

Only 6% of firms in MENA countries have a female top manager

In Jordan, only 6% of female run enterprises generate revenues in excess of USD 100,000

25% of female entrepreneurs in Tunisia work in the cultural and social services sector

Only 14% of women in Jordan participate in the entrepreneurial sector

In Morocco, women make up 10% of the total number of entrepreneurs

71% of Tunisian female entrepreneurs started without any kind of resources (i.e. funds, support network...)
