Piloting and working with Growth Oriented Women Entrepreneurs.
Accreditation system for WED cadre (master trainers).
Broad organisation development approach to working with project partners including governments.

Other forms of research on strengths, gaps and opportunities likewise contributed to a comprehensive approach.
Inclusion of both men and women as trainers and to participate in WED training activities.
