WeRise Toolkit for Accelerators

Authors/editor(s): WeEmpowerAsia and Bopinc

This toolkit is created specifically for for and with accelerators in Asia and Europe that are focussing on becoming more gender-smart and providing better access to finance for the women-led SMEs they support. By accelerator programmes, we mean organizations providing entrepreneur support services directly to men or women entrepreneurs and organizations that offer larger ecosystem programmes to entrepreneurs, investors and others. The toolkit was co-created with entrepreneurs, accelerators and finance experts from both Asia and Europe. Through interactive workshops and pilot training sessions with them, we set out to make the materials as practical and applicable for you as possible.
