Press Release

On June 13, 2024, The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) in cooperation with the Belize Intellectual Property Office (BELIPO) held a closing event and National Workshop for Belizean women entrepreneurs who participated in the “IP for Women Entrepreneurs: Creating Value through Intellectual Property” project.

Over the past six (6) months, eight ( Belizean women entrepreneurs benefitted from training, mentoring and networking in intellectual property (IP), which assisted Indigenous Peoples’, as well as local communities’ women, to make strategic and effective use of intellectual property tools in their businesses.

The project arose from the necessity to develop and launch initiatives to engage women more in IP ecosystems and to support Women Entrepreneurs to overcome barriers and be change-agents for other women.

Additionally, the project aimed to bring together a range of relevant local and international partners and promoting linkages between institutions that support women entrepreneurs to raise awareness of IP, thus creating partnerships for the women entrepreneurs. The closing event also saw the women entrepreneurs receiving advice and guidance from stakeholders such as financial institutions and prominent entrepreneurs, including representatives from the Development Finance Corporation, Belize Bank Ltd, Marie Sharp Ltd and the Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

The Government of Belize through its national development plan, #planBelize’s Medium-Term Development Strategy 2022-2026, maintains its commitment to develop enterprises, incentivizing the private sector to invest and diversify and expanding production and export to transform our economy.
