USA Women Entrepreneurship

Program Overview

The USA Women Entrepreneurship Cooperative (USAWEC) is a unique 5-month business leadership and management program run by the Center for Global Enterprise (CGE). Empowering women entrepreneurs, including those who have uneven access to high-quality learning, is a crucial component of CGE’s vision. 

The USAWEC blended-learning program will run from June 1- October 30, 2022, and will equip a diverse cohort of 150 US-based female business owners with the skills needed to grow successful, resilient, and scalable businesses.

The program’s blended-learning model delivers high-impact through the following core program activities:

  • Online interactive live sessions led by world-renowned business experts and thought leaders 
  • One-on-one mentoring from senior business professionals 
  • Individual applied learning activities 
  • Online and offline peer networking and feedback

USAWEC is inspired by the success of CGE’s African Women Entrepreneurship Cooperative (AWEC) which empowers women from across the African continent with the skills and networks needed to build resilient, sustainable, and scalable businesses.

USAWEC was launched as a pilot in 2021, and the entrepreneurs from the pilot reported significant improvements in cash management, increased brand visibility, generated new sales leads, strengthened business strategies, as well as more optimized business operations.

Application closed for 2022.
