  • Tirana International Hotel 8 Sheshi Skënderbej Tirana, Tirana Albania (map)

The opening event of “Empowering Women in Business" project took place at the Tirana International Hotel on June 10, 2014.

The overall objective of this activity is to enhance the leadership, management and
entrepreneurial skills of early-stage and existing women entrepreneurs/managers, diminish the human capital gap and increase the number of women entrepreneurs and managers who own/manage SMES and who contribute to the national economies of the region.

This activity is supported and funded by USAID (REG Regional Economic Growth) and is the first of a series of activities that CEED Albania will implement and which focus Albanian women entrepreneurs. 

Participants included over 35 successful Albanian women entrepreneurs and representatives of other related institutions. This event served for identifying suitable women entrepreneurs which will later be involved in comprehensive training and learning activities.
