The underlying concept of the Network of Women Entrepreneurs was that by organizing themselves in a corporate network, women entrepreneurs would benefit from the increased opportunities for cooperation, support, publicity, contact formation as well as from the connection to other related networks across the world for the exchange of experiences and best practices. Projects like enhancing the employment of unemployed women through the participation of NGOs, have as an aim to network the women among themselves, support the creation of small businesses or cooperatives, promote women production of arts, crafts and traditional products and expose them to the information on production processes and practices.
