BSI_4Women Entrepreneurial Gateway

Refugees and migrant women who have had to escape conflict zones, this is your chance to turn your entrepreneurial aspirations into reality!

We invite you to participate in the pre-incubation program on the 27-28th of August 2024, with a chance to apply for the 6-month incubator starting in September 2024 after that.

Pre-incubation

The main language of the pre-incubator and incubator program is English, with the possibility of receiving mentoring in Russian and English.

The 2-day pre-incubation program takes place in Tallinn and is free to all participants.

Who should apply?

This program is dedicated to refugee and migrant women who have had to escape conflict zones (war-affected countries, armed or political conflicts, etc.).

The pre-incubation program inspires you to find your own business idea or develop an existing business further. It creates good conditions for applying to the 6-month incubation program in the fall.

You are welcome to apply if you:

  • Have an innovative or scalable business idea or a business you would like to develop further
  • Ideally have a team you are working with, but you can also apply without one
  • Are willing to commit to the 2-day program and attend trainings in Tallinn

During the pre-incubation event we will validate ideas/teams to continue in the incubation program. They will need to apply separately for the 6-month incubation program starting in September 2024. Information about it will be introduced during day 2 of the pre-incubation program. Up to 5 ideas/teams will be selected for the incubation program.

Up to 30 participants can take part in the pre-incubation program. Application deadline is August 18, or until all 30 spots are filled.

The main language of the pre-incubator is English, with the possibility of receiving mentoring in Russian and English.
