Social Business Women
Social Business Women is an association that offers support to women starting their professional careers, returning to work or setting up their own business. Apart from advice and coaching, it provides micro-credits of up to 10,000 euros to finance start-ups. With its approach of women giving advice to women, the programme aims to improve women’s independence and self-employment options.
KfW Stiftung sponsors the association's location in Offenbach since 2015 on the premises of the non-profit company KIZ SINNOVA gGmbH which has its offices in the centre for new entrepreneurs Gründercampus Ostpol. Combining its efforts with those of its partners, KfW Stiftung hopes further locations in Germany will soon follow. Therefore, KfW Stiftung supports as well the Social Business Women location in Hanau, which since 2016 has also been built up by KIZ SINNOVA.
The association Social Business Women e. V. is a joint initiative of Accenture-Stiftung, KfW Stiftung and Sparkassen-Finanzgruppe.
