eXchange

eXchange – Activate Female Entrepreneurship – is a project focused on women’s entrepreneurship. It aimed to identify the obstacles facing women entrepreneurs and their entrepreneurial potential, particularly among the underprivileged, and to test a model of training for the third sector to support women entrepreneurs and provide them with the knowledge and skills necessary to develop their own businesses.

 

eXchange aimed to promote tolerance and intercultural understanding by raising the awareness of various actors (public, private and third sector entities) about the importance of integrating women of immigrant or ethnic origins into Portuguese society. This was achieved by strengthening entrepreneurial skills and promoting citizenship values. eXchange began in January 2014 and ran through December 2015.
