National Assessment of Women’s Entrepreneurship Development in Georgia
The starting point for the National Assessment of Women’s Entrepreneurship Development in Georgia was a firm belief that helping more female entrepreneurs build successful businesses could unlock enormous value for the economy of Georgia.
The study is representative and aims at understanding the barriers holding women back from starting or scaling businesses in Georgia and identifying locally adapted and strategic recommendations to unleash the potential of women entrepreneurs in the country.
Assessment has been conducted jointly by Women’s Entrepreneurship Development (WED) international consultants, CRRC Georgia and the National Statistics Office of Georgia (GeoStat), using the ILO’s national Women’s Entrepreneurship Development (WED) Assessment methodology.
The study is the joint effort of UN Women and ILO, in the framework of the Women’s Economic Empowerment (WEE) component of Good Governance for Gender Equality in Georgia (GG4GEG), generously funded by the Government of Norway and commissioned by the UN Women Country Office in Georgia.
