Female entrepreneurs in Africa and beyond to gain wider access to mentors and industryListen /
Women entrepreneurs around the world are being given an opportunity to better connect with experts, peers, networks and potential partners in their industry.
A partnership formed between UN Women and the non-profit Mara Foundation during the African Union Summit in Ethiopia, promises to enable, empower and inspire women in business.
The two entities will work side-by-side to provide mentoring, training and business tools for these entrepreneurs.
Anna Falth, manager of UN Women's Global Knowledge Gateway for Women's Economic Empowerment, spoke to UN Radio's May Yaacoub in detail about the new project.
