With the impact of COVID-19 on small business owners globally coupled with the difficulties many small businesses are facing in an ever-changing world, the Global Connections for Women Foundation is pleased to announce our launch of the GC4W Marketplace. The GC4W Marketplace is an e-commerce site that will give small businesses the opportunity to feel supported during a new transition and have the opportunity to connect with new customers.
The Global Connections for Women Foundation invites small business owners to submit their applications to sell their goods on a very dynamic site. Merchants on the GC4W Marketplace will also have access to the GC4W University training programs that equip female entrepreneurs with the skills they need to scale and transform their business. Merchants on the site will have exclusive access to mentors and business leaders to support their business initiatives through the GC4W Circle Network.
