WEP – Women’s Entrepreneurship Program

American University of Armenia Extension Dept, in cooperation with AIWA, has developed a comprehensive entrepreneurship training program for women in Armenia, both in English and Armenian.

The training, which contains special components for women-only audiences, addresses the need for entrepreneurial thinking – an empowered approach to continuous search for change, solutions approach to change and exploitation of change as an opportunity

Program participants, called Wepies, are selected from a variety of backgrounds with business ideas, through a competitive application and interview process.

A new initiative provides grants/loans to assist WEP graduates who own small businesses

AIWA takes pride in helping a number of Armenian women – through intensive training and mentoring – take an entrepreneurial approach in everything they do, including realization of their dreams in having their own small businesses.
