The Women Empowered through Export (WE-XPORT) program is an initiative launched by Caribbean Export, designed to support Caribbean women in business to start exporting or increase the exports of their products and services. Under WE-XPORT, Kisserup was selected as a mentor to coach women entrepreneurs in Jamaica, Bahamas and Suriname representing the specialty food, health, beauty and personal care sectors.
Over a three month period during the summer of 2018, Kisserup worked closely with each exceptional woman, providing targeted assistance focused on key areas such as product development, marketing & promotional Strategies, market intelligence and export readiness.
Since the end of the mentoring program, Kisserup has been proud to watch each entrepreneur achieve tremendous new success with the growth of their businesses. Read some of their inspirational stories below!
