Change Mechanics is proud to be part of the U.S. government’s efforts to empower women entrepreneurs in Pakistan. Change Mechanics assisted in the Accelerator Program for Women Entrepreneurs (APWE), in association with TiE and the U. S. where 35 women from all over Pakistan were trained for 3-minute presentations to international judges. 12 of the competition’s 476 women-led startups were chosen, incubated at FI, and sent to Silicon Valley for a two-month visit to meet with foreign investors.
The APWE program offered those women the tools, coaching, mentorship, and sustainable platforms necessary to forge business ties with both regional and international investors. To assist women in better communicating their business ideas to investors, it provided feedback and coaching on entrepreneurship plans and pitches.
The program offers female business owners a special chance to get exposure and resources that will help them expand their enterprises and have a long-lasting effect on their communities. Women in Pakistan who want to start businesses can get the tools and resources they need through initiatives like APWE, helping them grow profitable enterprises and advance the economy of their nation.
The U. S. Government is proud to collaborate with groups like Change Mechanics, TiE and FI to support Pakistan’s next generation of entrepreneurs, especially women.
We are excited to see the impact that these women-led startups will have on their communities and beyond. Programs like APWE have the potential to create a ripple effect, lifting up entire communities and reducing poverty. Change Mechanics remains committed to empowering women entrepreneurs in Pakistan and around the world, and we are proud to be part of this important work. Join us in supporting women entrepreneurs and spreading the word about this incredible opportunity.
