Why do I need to submit identification documents?
In order to be able to assess the eligibility of your business, we need to be able to verify that your business is registered and that you – as a Founder – are a Moldovan/Ukrainian national or a Moldovan resident. Acceptance into the FEMEIE program is preceded by a thorough due diligence process in which the legality and authenticity of all submitted documents will be verified through the appropriate authorities in Moldova.
How do you select entrepreneurs to participate?
Entrepreneurs are selected to participate through an application process, based on the eligibility criteria of the program. The application is assessed based on:
- Whether it fulfills all the legal requirements of the program
- Its level of completeness and accuracy
- The extent to which the business has been impacted by the war
- The extent to which the business has had proven traction and a validated product, and has shown financial stability prior to the war
- The participant’s motivation for joining the program
Each applicant receives a combined score based on all the above parameters, taking into account their personal circumstances and the degree to which their business can benefit from taking part in the FEMEIE program.
