The aim of this project was to provide female entrepreneurs from visible minority groups in Quebec and Colombia with capacity building workshops to develop their businesses and overcome issues related to discrimination. In parallel, interns from both Colombia and Quebec developed a research project to understand the barriers that these female entrepreneurs face. This led to a joint report and policy brief to provide recommendations on how to overcome these challenges. Finally workshops between the entrepreneurs in Quebec and in Colombia were organized to exchange and understand each other’s perspectives and challenges. This gave a chance to the entrepreneurs to connect, exchange ideas and network. This project was our first partnership with an organization in Colombia, Nuestro Flow, a social enterprise born in Montreal but operating in Bogota.
