Accelerator #5 vol. 2 - Tech Skills for Women and Kidz

 The core mission of Accelerator #5 (ACC#5) was to empower women and young girls and boys living in Armenia to make the first steps in the tech world by delivering tech and business training, as well as helping them to come up with their own startup projects. 

The program was tailored to the needs of kids (girls and boys)* and women, who have little or no field knowledge.

*We’re excited to announce, that the 2nd volume of ACC #5 Kidz was designed for both boys and girls.

Accelerator #5 (ACC #5) vol.2 is implemented by UNDP Armenia’s ImpactAIM Accelerator in cooperation with Innovative Solutions and Technologies Center (ISTC Foundation), Enterprise Incubator Foundation (EIF), Armenian-Indian Center for Excellence in ICT (AITC), Armenia National SDG Innovation Lab and UNICEF Armenia.

National Scale-up of Accelerator#5

Within the MPTF-funded “Accelerating women’s empowerment for economic resilience and renewal - the post-COVID-19 reboot in Armenia” project UNDP Armenia’s ImpactAIM opens a special call for proposals seeking partnership with Civil Society Organisations (CSOs). As part of the project, UNDP ImpactAIM has implemented an innovative three-tier acceleration program - Accelerator # 5 - designed to help women and girls improve their business, digital, and financing skills and capabilities to successfully identify, access, and benefit from economic opportunities in the post-COVID-19 context. The current call supports the upscaling of Accelerator#5 to a national level by establishing “Accelerator#5. National Platform for Women Economic Empowerment”. The developed concept and framework will support the exit of Accelerator#5.
