The Women with Disabilities Entrepreneurship Project is currently working with contractors in four regions to recruit, screen, and refer women with disabilities to organizations that provide entrepreneurial training and supplemental life skills training. This training includes basic concepts about business and how to complete a business feasibility plan; concept development; marketing; price and profitability; and resource development. These women in the program also benefit from one-on-one consultations and assessments, networking activities, and industry-specific mentoring from regional partners.
