Female Entrepreneurs needed

Workshop "Females as Entrepreneurs" targets future female entrepreneurs

„The chances for a young woman to work have always been better in United Arab Emirates (UAE) than in any other Arab State,” stated Emirati State Minister Dr. Maitha Al Shamsi, in her opening remarks to the workshop „Females as Entrepreneurs – How to overcome the obstacles.“

The workshop, which took place on Oct. 6th, 2011 in Abu Dhabi, was jointly organized by KAS Regional Program Gulf-States, the GIZ as well as the Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development. Young women from all parts of the Emirate came to learn about the initial steps to enter entrepreneurship. They were given a first insight into the possibilities to realize their own business ideas and visions. The workshop was the successful continuation of KAS’ event series „Females as Entrepreneurs“.
