What is FEMTECH?
Underpinning FEMTECH is the extensive consulting experience of the FEMTECH directors this includes a track record in the planning and implementation of business incubation programmes, SME support programmes (including the use of ICTs and information access), monitoring and evaluation of programmes and projects, and general management experience.
Globally, the number of women who operate their own businesses is increasing, but there are few women- owned businesses that grow beyond being “lifestyle” businesses. Entrepreneurship in developing countries often results from economic necessity rather than the exploitation of new market opportunities. Women- owned businesses tend to generate lower levels of income, make less use of technology (including ICTs) and are more often found in the service industries or informal sector. Cultural issues present additional challenges e.g. multiple roles and power dynamics in the family, society and the workplace.
