Asia Pacific Women's ICT Network Center has made various efforts to play a pioneer role for women's informatization in gender & ICT.
The first two sections below provide a general overview of the research project and findings, while the last section aims to promote connection and entrepreneurship by creating a space where women (from APEC regions) can upload their business ideas, receive input/advice from our expert business consultants, and connect with other like-minded women from around the world.

Therefore, this specific on-line platform is intended to make the findings from our research project more accessible and interactive by directly catering to and engaging women entrepreneurs from all APEC economies. Users are encouraged to upload their business ideas, engage with our expert business consultants who are on-hand to give personal and direct advice, or network with other registered female entrepreneurs. The goal of this platform is to create a safe, open, and useful space for women entrepreneurs to learn more about ICT and entrepreneurship, and hopefully to connect and promote female led businesses within APEC economies.
