In 2021, Hungary joined the Academy for Women Entrepreneurs’ (AWE) global network and will launch the Academy through the U.S. Embassy in Budapest in association with The Foundation for Sustainable Enterprises. The 10-month program will utilize global best practices adapted to the local environment to best serve Hungarian participants.
AWE is an entrepreneurship promotion program that provides women entrepreneurs with the knowledge, tools, and network they need to create and grow their businesses. It enables women from all over the world to deepen their entrepreneurial skills and build their business model through facilitated online education and ongoing mentorship.
AWE Hungary is looking for women from outside of Budapest with unrealized enterprise ideas, or whose businesses are in a very early stage, and who are motivated to launch or further build their businesses. Applicants should speak a basic level of English and be between the ages of 25 and 45. Applications can be submitted through www.awehungary.com until May 2, 2021.
In addition to the training materials, mentoring, and networking, the participants will have the opportunity to pitch their business ideas in front of an expert jury in November 2021. A total of $25,000 will be distributed as seed funding to the three to five most promising entrepreneurs based on their submitted business plans and presentations. Further program details and an application form are available at www.awehungary.com.
