Empowering for Success: Lessons in Supporting Women-Led Agribusinesses

Supporting women-led enterprises has been an important focus of the Feed the Future Partnering for Innovation program since its inception nearly a decade ago. Beginning with the Accelerating Women’s Entrepreneurship (AWE) award in 2018 and continuing with the Growing Women’s Entrepreneurship (GroWE) awards in 2019 and 2020, the program has supported woman-owned and -operated agribusinesses in sub-Saharan Africa to strengthen the capacity of individual female entrepreneurs and help them to scale and grow their businesses.

Join Feed the Future Partnering for Innovation on Thursday, February 17, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. EST to learn the key findings of a new report examining the role of the AWE and GroWE awards in supporting women entrepreneurs and their businesses, especially in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, and how recipients continue to leverage the tools and resources developed as part of their awards.

A brief presentation of key report findings by the study team from The Canopy Lab will be followed by a facilitated Q&A with two GroWE award recipients and an open Q&A exchange for all participants.
