Workshop on Women in Entrepreneurship: 6-8 May 2019, Santiago, Chile

The Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering is organising an Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Workshop on Women in Entrepreneurship to be held 6-8 May, in Santiago, Chile, on behalf of the Australian Government.

The workshop will bring together leaders from each APEC economy’s incubator and accelerator ecosystem to share best practice in programs aimed at women entrepreneurs and to develop recommendations for future policy across the region regarding women in entrepreneurship.

Key themes will include skills development, access to capital, access to markets and the identification of barriers that prevent women’s full participation in entrepreneurship programs.

The workshop will include a two-day program of site visits in Santiago, exploring the city’s start-up economy and successful entrepreneurship programs aimed at women.
