Connect to Success – program sponsored by the U.S. Embassy Lisbon

Connect to Success is a program sponsored by the U.S. Embassy Lisbon, which
aims to support the growth of women-owned businesses (WOBs) in Portugal.

The initiative is composed of corporate mentoring, real-time MBA consulting
projects and business oriented workshops.

The corporate mentoring program has been designed to provide participating
female business owners with valuable insight to assist them in accelerating the
growth potential of their enterprises. The project will match female business
owners with a team of corporate mentors, made up of executives with varied skill
sets. Through a year-long program, which typically entails two-hours of
mentorship each month, Portuguese women will boost their economic growth
potential while simultaneously expanding a corporation’s strategic insight and
business base.

The MBA consulting program is a dynamic way to engage Portugal’s
youth while simultaneously offering WOBs an opportunity to get a specific
business challenge addressed by teams of MBA and Masters students over the
duration of a semester.

The practical workshops will focus on developing the tangible business skills
necessary for WBOs to maximize their growth potential. Subjects will be
wide-ranging and include topics such as marketing and social media, competitive
intelligence, basic accounting and operational management.
