In 2019, _SocialStarters and Asplande co-created an innovative social impact incubator program, which offers support, training and work space to 60 female entrepeneurs from favela and low-income surburban communities in Rio de Janeiro.
We know female entrepeneurs face obstacles and prejudice due to the triple burden of gender, race and social class. Our inclusive, ambitious and high profile programme gives female social entrepreneurs access to tools and support to help them tackle their business challenges, and help them be more sustainable and increase their social impact.
