More #womeninbusiness = a stronger economy and successful society. Sweden supports women entrepreneurs in Georgia 365 days of the year in partnership with 
Economic Policy Research Center

“As a female entrepreneur I was empowered to start negotiations with foreign partners. Our company is currently working on offering services to international clients.”
Eka Aronia, founder of ''Bemobile'', on the difference that  has made for her company. How can Georgian companies increase their national and international presence, production scale and sales?
The project “Georgian Business Close to Europe”  not only answers this question but makes change happen within the business sector itself. 
(EPRC) has together with the state agency Enterprise Georgia selected 100 companies to partake in the Sweden-funded initiative. The companies operate in various sectors, such as ICT, architecture and interior design, and manufacturing of toy and child apparel. In total, 44 are women run businesses.
Women entrepreneurs have especially participated in training courses on e-commerce, social media, marketing and PR. Tailored consultancy sessions, workshops and business to business (B2B) meetings are offered too. To be able to expand their production, some enterprises get financial support to purchase products and services.
As the COVID-19 pandemic hit the country, the need for business representatives to learn and develop has but only increased.
