Reimagining Initiatives for Sustainable Empowerment

28th to the 30th of March

ABOUT

Entrepreneurship has been identified across the world as vital to a nations’ economic growth. However, even with the rise of start-ups not much focus has been placed on the gender imbalance in entrepreneurship within the Caribbean region.

 

United Nations statistics highlights that women comprise half of the world’s population and perform two thirds of the work, but only a small percentage consider entrepreneurship in the informal sector or even in sectors traditionally dominated by females.
 

RISE will focus on addressing key challenges faced by female entrepreneurs in Latin America and the Caribbean. The 3 day conference will focus on female driven business in communities, and their potential for growth and the possibility of strengthening communities by providing jobs and income.
