UNESCO > U40 Empowered: Women entrepreneurs powering the digital creative industries

U40 Empowered is a special call to expand the IFCD’s actions to support young women entrepreneurs in the digital creative industries. This initiative is made possible thanks to the generous contribution of Sabrina Ho, a rising young cultural entrepreneur and philanthropist.

“U40 Empowered” represents a unique opportunity to increase young women’s opportunities to access funding, infrastructure, equipment and co-production opportunities in the digital creative industries. “U40 Empowered” will also support strategies that address the different needs, aspirations, capacities and contributions of women. Through support for such projects, “U40 Empowered” will unlock opportunities for young women entrepreneurs and realise their full potential in the digital creative industries.

“U40 Empowered” supports projects from national and international NGOs from developing countries that are Parties to the 2005 Convention.

Project proposals submitted in the framework of this unique opportunity will be reviewed by an independent Panel of Experts and approved directly by Ms Sabrina Ho.

The maximum amount that can be requested is 100,000 USD.

Deadline: 16 April 2018
