Promoting social entrepreneurship among women in Saudi Arabia

By Samantha Garner | August 27, 2010

At GoForth Institute, we’re strong proponents of entrepreneurship education in developing countries. It’s a great way to help people create sustainable growth in their communities.

For this reason, we were excited to come across a blog post on Babson College’s site, talking about The US-Saudi Women’s Forum on Social Entrepreneurship, their partnership with The Wellesley Centers for Women at Wellesley College, Dar Al Hekma College, and ICF International. In this one-year program, young women from Saudi Arabia were taught all the skills they need to become social entrepreneurs. They learned about social entrepreneurship, developing leadership skills and how to create business plans. They then launched their business ideas with the support of the program.

Watch the video on Babson College’s blog for more info on this great initiative to support women entrepreneurs in Saudi Arabia.

    I did my MBA with some women from Dubai, business and women is a tough sell over there.
