In 2007, the Government commissioned what was then known as Nutek (Swedish Business Development Agency) to promote women’s entrepreneurship. The resulting work went on between 2007 and 2009, with an extension to 2010. In March 2011, the Government issued a decision establishing a new programme to promote women’s entrepreneurship, which was a further development of those measures that had already been implemented.
