For future entrepreneurs!
AFA has become a USAID partner in Serbia as part of a three-year project that aims to help women reach their full economic potential and thus contribute to our country's economic growth.
The AFA Mentorship program is part of the WE Founders Initiative, a three-year project funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented by Impact Hub Belgrade in cooperation with the Association for the Affirmation of Women Potential (AFA) and the Association of Business Women of Serbia (UPZ).
The first AFA Mentorship Program is designed to empower women to enrich their business ambitions with the skills necessary to successfully start their own businesses, as well as to connect businesswomen with experts in various fields and women who are leaders in companies and their ongoing mentors this seven-month path to success.
The training program is intended for all women who have an idea they believe in, but which is under development, has not been tested and fully conceived. At the same time, the program is aimed to women who lack skills, broader experience, networking with professionals and resources to start a business on their own.
The first phase program, which begins in September 2019 and runs through March 2020, will be implemented for a select group of 20 participants through interactive workshops once a month.
The Mentorship project is extremely visible in the media, and the participants and mentors of the first phase of the program were presented at the third AFA Women's Leadership Summit last year, held on October 24 and 25 in Belgrade.
