The Belize Trade and Investment Development Service (BELTRAIDE) which enables and facilitates innovative and competitive business development is proud to announce the launch of a newly designed mentorship website called Female Entrepreneurship Website. The website is designed primarily for women, as a part of Belize’s first Female Entrepreneurship Program which was inaugurated in May 2019 with support from the Regional Center for the Promotion of Micro and Small Enterprises (CENPROMYPE).
The website serves to promote women entrepreneurship in an organized and welcoming network that strengthens abilities, creates business prospects and provides mentoring programs to develop their entrepreneurial skills. The mentors will assist women in making well-informed and strategic decisions to position and enhance their competitiveness. Women in attendance at the launch today shared stories of their entrepreneurial journey and participated in a panel discussion on Women in Leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 World.
Mrs. Narda Garcia, the new Chair of BELTRAIDE, said, “This platform secures our commitment to the success of the women of Belize and allows for the advancement of the Belize Female Mentorship Network as we focus on the success, challenges, and experience of our women entrepreneurs.”
Apart from providing a mentorship network for women, the website will also host capacity building workshops, teaching courses and business promotion opportunities. Interested partners are encouraged to explore the website and sign up to become a mentor or mentee by visiting https://femaleentrepreneurs.bz/
