The aim of the leadership programme She Entrepreneurs was to provide knowledge and tools in social entrepreneurship to the young female social entrepreneurs in the MENA-countries and Sweden as well as promote practical experience in creating business plans adapted to social business ideas and establish sustainable networks for the future.

The target group of the She Leads programme was business women and female entrepreneurs from Saudi Arabia, who were given an opportunity to strengthen their leadership skills as well as develop a network with people in similar roles as well as Swedish companies.

Sweden@ programmes aimed to enhance private sector development and cooperation between Sweden and other east African countries (Rwanda and Kenya) by drawing the attention to the young entrepreneurs within creative sectors. The programmes provided capacity building in the areas of gender, sustainability, digital solutions and entrepreneurial skills.
