Women’s Incubation Services for Entrepreneurs II (WISE II)
Program Dates: August 2014 – July 2015
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 enhanced women-led micro and small enterprises in marginalized areas in northern Palestine.
WISE II empowered high-potential Palestinian women through an innovative, holistic, and intensive business incubation. Through skills-based training, coaching, and incubation, WISE II was 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:
- Directly impacted 100 women entrepreneurs
- Incubated innovative, sustainable, female-led businesses
- Reached high-potential women from disadvantaged, marginalized communities including refugee camps and villages throughout the North including Nablus, Jenin, Tulkarem, Qalqilya and Tubas
- Connected businesswomen to apprenticeships with likeminded companies, professionals and organizations to increase their skills base
