Good Practices in Supporting Women Entrepreneurs Call

19 Apr 2022 Calls
Wegate call

The WEgate online platform opened a call for good practices in supporting women entrepreneurship. WEgate aims to help women entrepreneurs to start and grow their businesses with the help of the dynamic community and knowledge sharing.

Why participate in women entrepreneurs' call?

Get a chance to promote your best practice and your organization, and share it with the whole community via the WEgate e-platform and social media channels! Your organization can benefit in a number of ways, including:

  • participating in a peer review will help identify areas where the supporting women's entrepreneurship can be improved;
  • opportunities to have your good practice showcased at the international level;
  • the possibility to enhance your networking through the access to the WEgate platform, participation in events and other initiatives where your initiative may be disseminated

Be an example of how others can replicate your initiative and support women entrepreneurs. WEgate offers an ideal environment for the transferability of good practice because a) the community members have a common objective - supporting WE, and b) they have a common platform to share good practices (i.e. the WEgate e-platform).

Who can apply?

Stakeholders supporting women entrepreneurs to start up and grow and/or organisations implementing different WE–related initiatives. With this call for submission of good practices, WEgate aims to facilitate the process of surfacing good practices within the community with a potential for replication and transferability. More concretely, we aim to:

  • Gain insight into WE initiatives: Exploring what initiatives are learning and reflecting on from the practical experience.
  • Strengthen practice: Focusing on reaching scale and effective uptake and facilitation approaches.
  • Boost coordination: Building awareness of other initiatives / WE practices /strategies that would be beneficial to coordinate with.
  • Strengthen collaboration: Building relationships among WEgate community members, incentivizing improved collaboration.
  • Strengthen a culture of learning: Building relationships and demonstrating practical benefits of sharing.

What is a good practice?

A good practice is a process, initiative or working method that has been proven to work well by ensuring desired results and could be recommended as a model. It is a successful experience, which has been tested and validated, and deserves to be shared so that a greater number of WE organizations can adopt it.

A good practice that has proved successful to a) meet the needs of the women entrepreneurs or b) optimise the operational performance of the WE stakeholders.

A good practice is practically a successful response, developed by the WEgate community members, to address different WE development challenges, ranging from policy development, promotion of WE, capacity building, through services for women entrepreneurs, to intra-organisational tools for improved operational performance.
