The National Platform for Women Entrepreneurship is established through a project co-financed by the European Union, and is implemented by the Association of Business Women in partnership with the Association of Chambers of Commerce of Macedonia, National Federation of Farmers and Foundation for Management and Industrial Research MIR.
The creation of the National Platform for Women Entrepreneurship (NESP) arose from the need for dialogue, structural cooperation and trust of women entrepreneurship with national and local government, civil society organizations and the business community, in order to economically empower women, including youth and women from rural areas. The main goal of the project is to strengthen the capacity of civil society organizations to create policy proposals and advocacy in the field of women entrepreneurship, by merging existing networks into a single platform that will be of interest to women entrepreneurs at all levels.
The goal is for the institution to be able to make a significant positive contribution to the promotion of women entrepreneurship that will contribute to the economic and social strengthening of society as a whole.
