(هي_رائدة) is a program to support early stage women entrepreneurs operating in the ICT secto​r.
 
PROGRAM DETAILS
 

The primary target audience of this program are female entrepreneurs whose product is technology or the entrepreneurs who use technology as an assistive factor to commercialize their products.

We focus more on developing the logic side of business development rather than a detailed theoretic approach. The main target is to induce the basic business development functions as a secondary practical skill set allowing them to –efficiently– run a successful operation, eliminating a lot of waste on resources and opportunities, and help onboard them on other entrepreneurship programs within TIEC and the ecosystem at large.

The Women Entrepreneurship program in TIEC (هي_رائدة) is a yearlong program. The target of the program is to train women entrepreneurs on startup methodologies and concepts wherever they are throughout the 27 Egyptian governorates. ​
