WeRise Toolkit for Entrepreneurs

Authors/editor(s): WeEmpowerAsia and Bopinc

This toolkit is created specifically for women entrepreneurs that own a small to medium sized entreprise (SME) in the so-called missing middle. As an entrepreneur, your business is probably too big to benefit from a microfinance institution but still too small or too risky for the average venture capitalist. This makes it hard to get access to finance. This toolkit is directly aimed at women entrepreneurs in this situation and we provide you with a way to improve your access to finance while becoming more gender inclusive in your own business. The toolkit is co-created by women entrepreneurs for women entrepreneurs. Through interactive workshops and pilot training sessions with women entrepreneurs from different sectors across Europe and Asia, we set out to make the materials as practical and applicable for you as possible. Welcome to the journey in which Women Entrepreneurs rise together.
