Democratizing Access: Women Entrepreneurs Incubation Program

Why we BUILD this

Introduction to

BUILD is a program that empowers women entrepreneurs by providing access to financial capital, knowledge through 1:1 tailor coaching with industry expert, and supporting regional and national market access.

In essence, the program is designed to bridge existing gaps between Women Small Growing Business (WSGB) and the Women Micro Entrepreneurs (WME) in Indonesia, which later will create collaborative ecosystems, and unlock the full potential of women-led businesses in Indonesia.

Size of Impact

Each year, every WSGB will be matched with 10 WME individuals through a co-creation process, with focus on incorporating gender mainstreaming and inclusivity interventions. The connection between WSGB and 10 WME is through group vendorship/buyer-supplier relationships, ensuring inclusivity and equal participation in collaborative work.
