New start: Empowering Ukrainian women through mentoring

Join us for a presentation of 4 business projects run by Ukrainian refugee women in Estonia on 18 May.

The event is being organised in collaboration with Hands for Ukraine, an Estonian NGO that helps Ukrainian women with children find housing in Estonia, and FICE (the Foreign Investor Council in Estonia).

The competition aims to identify a group of Ukrainian women who are fluent in

English and eager to start their own businesses in Estonia. Four projects will be presented. People attending the event will be able to vote for their favourite project The competition winner will receive a first prize, and all winners will be

offered to be mentored by members of the Chambers of Commerce.

Here is a summary of the projects:

🍰 Halyna Proode's project is to create a business that produces plant-based cakes and desserts, without gluten and lactose, without refined sugar, without artificial food colours and without eggs.

💻 Anna Posdniakova's project is to create an influencer marketing agency, bringing together all the influencers in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania to cooperate with them and connect them with companies looking for the best influencers.

🥓 Anna Lytvyn's project is to create a business of healthy snacks such as dried fruits, fruit rolls, dried meat and dried vegetables.

🔠 Olena Bezsmertna's project is to create an e-learning platform for the most widely used languages in the European Union - English, German, French as well as Estonian - which will not be limited in number of students and will be based on the Mnemo learning technique.

Join us in supporting entrepreneurship and help integrate Ukrainian women into Estonian society. It is an exciting initiative that reflects the values of the business community in Estonia, which is committed to promoting diversity and inclusion.

Volunteers are needed to mentor the winners. This is an excellent opportunity for business community members to give back and help support a group of motivated women who are eager to succeed.
