APEC Financial Opportunities Fair for Women-led MSMEs

Our project APEC Financial Opportunities Fair for Women-led MSMEs featured trends in startup fundraising, and opened new tools that help accelerate the development of business.

We held APEC Financing Opportunities Fair and a workshop in two APEC economies:

- the Russian Federation (Check out the video and the news report);

- Chinese Taipei (Check out news reports of SMEA, Taiwan and Ministry of Economic Affairs, R.O.C.)

Before the events, we did research on global grants, programs, funds and local women association, that provide variable business opportunities.

During these events in Russia and Chinese Taipei:

1) international programs and funds open to women-led SMEs were introduced;

2) open educational courses on social entrepreneurship, AI and technology development, innovation and sustainability, and healthcare were offered;

3) success stories from women-led SMEs and local women associations were shared;

4) women-led MSMEs from APEC economies presented their business projects to investors (angels/VCs targeting at startups in APEC region);

All the useful information is available in the report.

Participants from different countries learned where to look for such financing opportunities and how to grab them, what to pay attention for while applying or preparing a pitch, how to work with difficulties on the way.

We constantly look for business growth opportunities. And if there is none, we create them.
