The Georgian city of Batumi on 8 March will host this year’s National Women’s Business Forum, with the support of EU4Business. It will gather women entrepreneurs from all regions of the country, public, private and civil society organisations that support women’s entrepreneurship in Georgia, and national, regional and local government decision-makers.
The main topic of the Forum is women’s economic empowerment, financing opportunities for women start-ups and sharing of experience. Successful examples shared by women entrepreneurs from Georgia and neighbouring countries will give participants more knowledge about existing grant projects and loans and how to expand business.
Private and governmental organisations implementing grant projects will introduce financial opportunities via info desks. Panel discussions will be held between the participants and financing organisations, which will help to establish close linkages.
The Forum is organised by the Georgian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI), the Ajara Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI) and the Association of Businesswomen of Ajara (ABWA).
The event is supported by the EU-funded “SME Development and DCFTA in Georgia” project, implemented through the EU4Business initiative.
