Keep going abroad!
The South Baltic project Going Abroad says farewell in Szczecin but will continue to inspire female entrepreneurs and their ambitions to expand their businesses across borders.

The project sought to strengthen the business potential of women’s enterprises across borders by creating networks and providing new knowledge for sustainable and competitive business development. Going Abroad involved ca. 300 female entrepreneurs with micro businesses.

The project applied the so-called Success Team method across borders. This is a new model in the pattern of contacts and networks. The idea is that business women from different branches meet regularly to motivate and support each other in the management and development of their own enterprises. The Success Team is a group of 4-6 people who meet regularly every 3–4 weeks to support each other, and to help each other achieve the goals they set for themselves. This programme usually takes at least six months, depending on the composition of the group. Activities in a Success Team focus on improving the participants’ abilities in starting up and managing a business as well as on motivating each other and sharing individual experiences.

“Many women do not talk much about what they can do and do not make themselves and their companies visible. Moreover many struggle alone and are forced to solve all the problems by themselves. Success Teams are a way of breaking this isolation, enabling people to both give and accept help from others,” Dr. Christiane Bannuscher of Women into Business explains.

A number of success stories evidencing the value of cross-border success teams are compiled in the publication “Going Abroad –  the Success Story”, available here ».

The publication outlines also the Success Team method and the present situation for women in the South Baltic region with regard to labour market, entrepreneurial development and cross-border exchange.
