About the Women’s Entrepreneurship Accelerator

The Women’s Entrepreneurship Accelerator (WEA) is a multi-stakeholder partnership convening six United Nations agencies: International Labour Organization (ILO), International Trade Centre (ITC) International Telecommunication Union (ITU), UN Development Programme (UNDP), UN Global Compact (UNGC), UN Women and Mary Kay to maximize the development impact of women entrepreneurship in achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by creating an enabling ecosystem for women entrepreneurs around the world.

WEA has committed to empower 5 million women entrepreneurs by 2030.

WEA exemplifies the transformational power of a multi-partnership of unique magnitude to harness the potential of women entrepreneurs.
