4YFN x UNDP Women Innovators Programme in the Arab States: Demo Day
4YFN and UNDP have joined forces to support women start-up entrepreneurs based in the Arab region who are using technological solutions to advance the Sustainable Development Goals.

With this collaboration, UNDP and 4YFN aim to support women in tech in the Arab region. While innovative, women-led start-ups are becoming more common in the region, women face significant barriers to entrepreneurship, such as lack of access to finance and discriminatory gender norms. Among the barriers is also a lack of business-relevant social networks and mentorship opportunities, which this programme seeks to address.

UNDP selected 21 early stage start-ups led by women that have been provided new tools to develop and grow their projects, including practical guidance, meaningful connections, and industry insights. 35 industry experts, serial entrepreneurs, and investors from the 4YFN Global tech community have been engaged as mentors.

Following 5 weeks of mentorship sessions, the start-ups will be pitching to investors from 4YFN networks during a Demo Day event on 26 May 2021 at 13:30 - 15:30 Central European Time. Do join us by registering here!
