News / RCC launches Western Balkans Women Entrepreneurs of the Year award
The Regional Cooperation Council (RCC) has launched the Western Balkans Women Entrepreneurs of the Year initiative to recognise women who have started and developed their own business and contributed to new and sustainable jobs for other women and men in our region.
The competition covers six categories: Green Woman Entrepreneur, Creative Woman Entrepreneur, Travel and Hospitality Woman Entrepreneur, Roma Woman Entrepreneur, Start-up Woman Entrepreneur, and Young Woman Entrepreneur. Nominations will be accepted until 4 March.
The winners selected by the jury will be announced at the Regional Conference for Women Entrepreneurs in the Western Balkans on 11 March in Tirana. The winners will also have an opportunity to present their businesses at the event.
The six Western Balkans Women Entrepreneurs of the Year (2021) will receive up to 20 days of mentoring over a period of 5 months; membership and contributor status in the Regional Women Entrepreneurs Hub; promotion through RCC communication channels; and invitation to various RCC-organised events to showcase their success stories.
This initiative is being organised as part of the Common Regional Market Action Plan 2021-2024 and RCC Women Economic Empowerment Agenda. The project is co-financed by the European Union.
