Abstract

This paper is written to report on the impact study of '1 nita' project, a Malaysian government initiative that provides a platform for women entrepreneurs to build strong businesses through the use of information technology and the internet. Both qualitative and quantitative data was gathered for this study. Results have revealed that the 1 nita portal has given good impact to some, but not all the businesses. Recommendations have been given to ensure that the women entrepreneurs will become competitive at a global level through the exposure to technology-based learning.
