Women Entrepreneurs in STEM

WISE has been developed with a clear goal to increase the number of female entrepreneurs in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) by transforming their access to and the quality of the training they receive from entrepreneurship VET institutions.

This project convenes actors at all levels across the Vocational Education and Training (VET) system and the beneficiaries in order to promote change which is sustainable in the long term. The fact that women have different approaches to enterprise development, learn in different ways and require different support structures is well documented on paper, but often unexplored in action.

The Start-up in STEM course will address many of these aspects, using multimedia, interactive formats to generate both attitudinal change and grow confidence in technical skills.
