The FREE project (“Promoting Women’s Entrepreneurship in Remote Areas”) aims to empower, inspire and support entrepreneurial women living in remote areas. The number of women looking to start their own business is constantly growing. However, many of them face certain difficulties that are unique to women. The special need for business support is noticeable in the outermost regions: insufficiently developed infrastructure, lack of suitable premises, business support organizations do not pay as much attention as it should: difficult and rarely available specialized training, consultations. In response, 7 partners from different European countries: Iceland, the United Kingdom, Bulgaria, Croatia and Lithuania, initiated the FREE project. We aim to help start a business for women who have just started it or just have a business idea yet. We want them to become successful entrepreneurs. For women living in remote areas from major cities, we offer specialized distance learning, which delves into both business development and internal personal resources, psychological aspects.
