Executive Summary from Enxhi’s final report:
During the Winter term of 2013, my Rockefeller Center Named Internship was with WEConnect
International. WEConnect is an NGO that focuses on certifying and funding women owned and
led businesses in various countries. These countries include Mexico, Peru, Chile, the United
Kingdom, China, Turkey, and Australia. WEConnect receives funding and grants from the State

women businesses. In order to be certified by WEConnect, a company must be at least 51%
owned, managed and controlled by one or
more women, must operate a legally registered
business in any sector, must have the capacity
to sell to large corporations and/or the ability
to scale operations, and must be growth

community of corporate members and women owned businesses, a business readiness
assessment to identify areas where the WEConnect network can provide capacity building
support, an invitation to online forums presented by corporate members, with overviews of
their procurement process and practical tips on responding to Requests for Proposals (RFPs),
networking opportunities with procurement officers from member corporations, training
workshops on how to leverage your certification, coaching and mentoring from other certified
companies on key success factors and strategies, opportunity to attend global and local
events.” These resources enable the WBE's to reach their maximum potential and to prosper as
a women owned, women managed enterprise.
As an intern for WEConnect International, my work mainly revolved around research and data
analysis. I researched the status of women and women owned businesses in the countries that
WEConnect was branching out into. This information provided context for the data that
WEConnect had recorded on the businesses that they certified. This data included their annual
revenue, number of employees, and field of industry. I analyzed the data collected and
compared it to general statistics on women businesses and entrepreneurial businesses in the
specific regions and created a report based on my analysis. My report was then utilized by the
WEConnect Team during their executive meetings to review their progress and develop a
strategic plan for their upcoming projects and ventures.
