The Partnership on Women’s Entrepreneurship in Renewables (wPOWER), as a project under the U.S. Department of State, has been implementing its activities with partners across the globe, with the common goal of alleviating energy poverty through access to clean energy.
As part of a research project on women’s entrepreneurship in energy, wPOWER and Johns Hopkins University (JHU) wish to identify organizations that would like to contribute to a project. The project will develop case studies of successful business models for women energy entrepreneurs.
This would encompass a literature and field review of women’s entrepreneurship in the energy sector, with a specific focus on evidence related to coaching and mentoring. This would involve learning more about the 1) role of coaching and mentoring in their business, 2) women’s use of time and 3) how entrepreneurship activities have resulted in investments in family.
