Unlocking the POtential of Women
in social EntRepreneurship
Women constitute 52% of the total European population, but just one third of the EU is self-employed or a start-up entrepreneur. Starting a business or deciding to become self-employed appears to be a rather masculine prerogative and projections reveal pre-existing gender gaps in the labour market, and in particular in entrepreneurship. UPower provides affordable products and educational services for women, by addressing the above-mentioned problems and unlocking women’s entrepreneurial potential, especially for social entrepreneurship.
U.Power project's priority target groups are:
In September, the U.Power consortium met in Meath Partnership, Kells, Ireland to discuss the next steps of the U.Power Project. Partners from Latvia, Italy, Spain, France, Germany, and Armenia met to develop the framework for the U,Power Training of Trainers and Coaching Programme.
Interested in becoming a social entrepreneur? From January 2024, U.Power will be seeking participants to take part in an online training course designed to empower women by providing them with the tools to set up their own social enterprise.
