Three new online resources are available at:
1. Twelve case studies of women who have set up their own IT
sector microenterprise. The cases include a history and profile
of each enterprise, plus analysis of benefits, success factors,
risks and good practice lessons.
2. A research guidance document reflecting on good practice in
researching women's ICT-based enterprise for development. It
also includes copies of all the research instruments used.
3. A report on the recently-held international workshop on
"Developing Women's ICT-Based Enterprise". The report
includes analysis of the Kudumbashree initiative that has
created nearly 300 women's IT enterprises; results of
knowledge-building exercises at the workshop on issues such
as engaging sponsors, and solutions to key challenges in the
area; plus presentations and reflections on content/process in
running such workshops.
