Astra Global Program

There is power in global alliances. Astra Women’s Business Alliance’s Global Initiative offers a platform for WBEs to connect with other like-minded companies in a way that can open doors to future global trade and partnerships.

The Initiative also includes Astra’s Global Tool Kit, which offers insights into succeeding in the global marketplace.

Doing business across country boundaries drives growth in companies owned by women. According to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, women business owners who engage in international trade grew at a rate of 57% while those without international business grew at less than half that rate.

Astra’s Global Connect Summit helps women-owned businesses develop relationships that can lead to new contracts and capacity-building alliances. The Summit connects women business enterprises (WBEs) with representatives from multinational corporations. In the process WBEs learn how to mitigate the risk of doing business globally. The next Summit is planned for 2017.
