It deals with internal and external factors influencing women in starting or succeeding in business besides the ABC of entrepreneurship (marketing, finance, operations etc).

GET Ahead has been used in over 30 countries and helped over half a million women better understand the basics of business and find strategies on how to deal with issues such as household and community demands, networking and mobility. The 2017 version of GET Ahead incorporates new elements of coaching and peer learning processes, building women’s knowledge and confidence around developing business plans.
