Program Dates: August 2014 – Present
After the success of the Women’s Incubation Services for Entrepreneurs (WISE), TYO and PalTel Group Foundation (PGF) launched the Women’s Incubation Services for Entrepreneurs II (WISE II), a program that enhances women-led micro and small enterprises in marginalized areas in northern Palestine.
WISE II empowers high-potential Palestinian women through an innovative, holistic, and intensive business incubation. Through skills based training, coaching, and incubation, WISE II is a strategic multi-phase program to build the capabilities, confidence and access to capital for women entrepreneurs in Palestine.
Through WISE II, TYO and PGF will:
- Incubate over 20 innovative, sustainable, female-led businesses
- Directly impact 35 women entrepreneurs
- Reach high-potential women from disadvantaged, marginalized communities including refugee camps and villages throughout the North including Nablus, Jenin, Tulkarem, Qalqilya and Tubas
- Connect businesswomen to apprenticeships with likeminded companies, professionals and organizations to increase their skills base
