She Entrepreneurs is a new program by the Swedish Institute addressing young women social entrepreneurs in selected countries in the Middle East and North Africa: Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Morocco and West Bank–Gaza.

Six months after the Stockholm week, the participants will meet for a two-day follow-up for a status report from each social project.
