About FemBioBiz in Seychelles
The expected impact of the FemBioBiz program in Seychelles is to help increase awareness of bio sciences and entrepreneurship in Seychelles, in collaboration with the National Institute for Science, Technology and Innovation (NISTI). In the process, a group of female entrepreneurs will get the chance to be mentored, improve their products, their business models, and increase their networks locally as well as internationally; this in turn will entice young girls to consider a career in bio entrepreneurship.
The Enterprise Centre within The Guy Morel Institute, has a mentorship program existing already, so it will provide a platform for all participants, winners or not, to be able to join the mentorship program for continuity. The advantage of this is that the participants will get access to various networks and other programs which will make them successful.
