Mentoring 1,000 Women Entrepreneurs

Commitment by

Cherie Blair Foundation For Women

In 2012, the Cherie Blair Foundation committed to growing their mentoring program to affect the lives of 1,000 women small business owners. The mentoring program combines mentoring with technology to offer cross-border support to women entrepreneurs in developing and emerging economies. Through this new commitment, the Foundation will pair the women business owners from developing and emerging markets with mentors via a Google-designed web platform that enables regular connection, learning, and networking. Over the course of the next two years, mentees from over 27 countries will gain business skills, technological expertise, access to capital, and an increase in confidence - all leading to improved business performance.
