What is WE3A?

Thunderbird School of Global Management and the IDB Lab have partnered to create three-pronged catalytic programming to build women owned small businesses in Latin America. This endeavor, called WE3A, takes its name from the three pillars of collaboration it’s built around—Women Entrepreneurs who Aspire, Activate and Accelerate. WE3A will provide participants in six Latin American countries with world class training and access to resources and networks that has been largely out of their reach until now.
WE3A focuses on improving access to value chains for women-owned, small and medium sized enterprises (*WSMEs) while innovating the entrepreneurial experience of women entrepreneurs in the most underdeveloped economies of Latin America.
