In order to achieve all the above targets on-line and off-line training, community building, go-to-market digital solutions will be provided for the beneficiaries. Extensive communication will be enhanced as part of the program. Together we will develop a new methodology, train and motivate a new generation of female entrepreneurs as well as smart angel investors.
