We announced "The European Mentor Network of Women Entrepreneurs” project with a press conference at the Özyeğin University Altunizade Campus on the 3rd of January. In addition to Özyeğin University Director Erhan Erkut, the President of KAGIDER Gülden Türktan, ANGİKAD Member of the Board Arzu Özyurt, a few KAGIDER members, business women and entrepreneurs who will participate in the project also attended the conference.
The project financed by The European Commission has a budget of 1 million Euros with the contributions of 17 countries. The project will be run for two years by KAGIDER with the cooperation of Özyeğin University and ANGİKAD. Thirteen successful Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises owned by women will mentor 26 women entrepreneurs for 18 months.
The aim of the project is to support and to improve women who have newly established businesses with the help of successful business women. These women have been in the sector for long years with successful businesses of their own.
Specifically, the goal is to create a permanent program to help women entrepreneurs with their newly established businesses.
Women entrepreneurs who have the potential to be successful, who have established their own business in a year (but not over four years), or women managing a corporation, are sought out for the "The European Mentor Network of Women Entrepreneurs” project. This aims to enhance and support successful women who exemplify and encourage women entrepreneurship in Turkey.
