What is Kota?
The Kota Alliance is a umbrella organization elevating collaboration across borders for women-centered nonprofits, NGOs, social enterprises and entrepreneurs, businesses and startups that share the like-minded goal of improving gender equality and supporting women. Currently working out of the Centre for Social Innovation (CSI), The Kota Alliance long term goal is to be working independently out of a World Center for Women via a social enterprise model. About half of nonprofits identify “long-term financial sustainability” as their greatest challenge. By joining Kota at the Women's Lab at CSI, our members benefit from our group discount for coworking and event space. Additionally, those who join our community, receive tangible fiscal, physical, and programmatic support, as well as the opportunity to collaboration across organizations.
