U&WE Hub is already in Ukrainian communities! 

The U&WE Hub is expanding its network of offline hubs for Women Entrepreneurs and has already opened five local offline U&WE Hubs in the following cities:
- Brovary, Kyiv region
- Hoshcha, Rivne region
- Ivano-Frankivsk
- Chernivtsi
- Zaporizhzhia

The purpose of U&WE Hub offline


We aim to unite Ukrainian women entrepreneurs in Ukraine and around the world, creating a network of responsible female-led businesses that not only grow individually but also positively impact their cities and country.

To expand economic opportunities for women in Ukraine, we plan to establish a network of child-friendly hubs where women can learn the basics of entrepreneurship, gain insights into developing their own businesses, enhance entrepreneurial thinking, join a women's business community, and find partners such as investors, banks, and other companies.

We believe that businesses created by women will play a crucial role in the development of cities and communities in Ukraine! 

What makes the offline U&WE Hub unique?

The offline U&WE Hub is a space for development and learning, experience exchange, and networking, offering paths for growth for women interested in developing their own businesses. Professional trainers, facilitators, and mentors will guide you on the journey to business growth.
While you learn and create, your child will be supervised in a safe space within the hub. Our hubs are equipped with a separate room with an administrator/nanny for children.

5. Working with Mentors
An integral part of the training program is working with mentors who will inspire, assist, share their experience, and sometimes pose insightful and impactful questions that will guide you to new horizons!

6. Visits to Local Companies 
Local coordinators organize educational visits to socially responsible local businesses for you. This serves as additional motivation to start your own business from someone who loves what they do.

7. Psychosocial Support 
An integral part of the hub is the emotional support for women. Therefore, we have a psychologist (art therapy, body-oriented therapy, psychoeducation) and coaches who will motivate you to conquer new business heights. And that's not all! You can also enjoy yoga and meditation sessions, and in the summer, there's a fitness picnic waiting for you!

8. Comfortable and Safe Spaces for Children 
During times of war, most state-run kindergartens have closed, meaning that women without childcare support must choose between self-realization and their maternal duties. Within the offline U&WE Hub, there is a separate children's room with an administrator who oversees the children while mothers learn the basics of entrepreneurship.

9. One-Day Intensives in Communities
To accommodate women from rural areas, off-site educational intensives are organized. The educational program is specifically designed to meet the needs of rural women, providing a concise overview of entrepreneurship, from defining a business idea to crafting a step-by-step business plan.


Other Engagement Formats for Offline Hubs

If my city is not included in the pilot regions, but I have the opportunities, resources, and partners (or will find them) to initiate a hub in my city/community.

Solution: Email us at with your request and vision for creating a hub in your city, and together we will determine a collaborative path of support! We are ready to share knowledge, experience, introduce you to partners, and achieve fantastic things together!

If I don't have the resources to initiate a hub, but I am interested in bringing together current and future women entrepreneurs in my city/community/region (even if it's abroad).


Solution: Our goal is to create a vast network of U&WE Hubs across Ukraine and the world. To achieve this, we encourage you to establish your U&WE Hub Locals - informal gatherings of women in your city under the U&WE Hub brand. You have the flexibility to decide how often and in what format you meet. By doing so, you strengthen your own brand by bringing women together not only around U&WE Hub but also around yourself! We support you with advice, speaker invitations, assistance in communicating with venues for meetings, and ideas for networking event formats! Reach out to us at for further assistance.

I want to join as an organizer, local coordinator, or volunteer for U&WE Hub.


Solution: Fill out the form, and we will get in touch with you! We are always open to new ideas, people, and opportunities!

The UWE Hubs offline are implemented by CSR Ukraine with the financial support of Global Giving. Partners of the training program on entrepreneurship in the hubs are the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Ukraine, the global Buzz Women movement.
