Women Entrepreneurs-in-STEM (WESTEM) Program

The Women Entrepreneurs-in-STEM (WESTEM) program is here to empower, support and train all women entrepreneurs in Southern Alberta. We specialise in working with professional women in STEM fields, and helping all female entrepreneurs incorporate emerging technologies into their businesses.

This is
our story

With funding from the Government of Canada’s Women Entrepreneurship Strategy, Economic Development Lethbridge and Tecconnect have created a program for Women Entrepreneurs offering training, networking, mentorship and access to current and emerging technologies.

The Women Entrepreneurs-in-STEM (WESTEM) program focuses on advancing gender, rural-urban and racial equality in entrepreneurialism. This is achieved by supporting under-represented women in rural and remote regions of Southern Alberta and creating a female-based community of practice and a highly collaborative and streamlined network.

In partnership with current and future women entrepreneurs, business advisors, business leaders, mentors, entrepreneurial organisations, and post-secondary institutions, we offer programming specific to the needs of the participants of the WESTEM program.

If you are a woman working in a STEM field considering starting your own business, a woman considering starting a company, or a current female entrepreneur, we can help you build and grow your dream business!

You have a vision.
We can help you get there.

In order for us to streamline programming best suited to your needs, please complete the survey that best describes you:

Are you a female entrepreneur residing in Southern Alberta? If so, we want to hear from you!

Are you a Professional Woman in a STEM field and interested in launching/growing your business? If so, this is the survey for you!
