The Academy of Women Entrepreneurs (AWE) is a new initiative from the government of the United States to support and empower women entrepreneurs around the world.
Through an inclusive learning community, women around the world have opportunities to explore the fundamentals of business, such as preparing business plans and raising capital, with the goal of building a better future for their families and communities.
The AWE women have access to the DreamBuilder platform, a user-friendly and easy-to-use online course that reinforces entrepreneurship components, they participate in directed lessons related to business management and, in addition, they have the opportunity to connect with networks of companies, women entrepreneurs and mentors who share the same perspective in their own regions and in the United States.
In Colombia, this Program is implemented by the Entrepreneurship Center of the Sergio Arboleda University – Sergio i + E Lab.
