EmpowerWOMENt -Successful Enterpreneurial Empowerment for Women in Start-up Business
A woman in entrepreneurship is a great source for growth in Europe; however women need different approaches than men. Women might choose different business areas and work differently than men. Many women like to include social values in their work as well. This is why we need entrepreneurial ecosystems for women, based on their own life experiences and value systems.
In this context ecosystem means communities of support structures, mutual help and networking resources put at the service of entrepreneurial women - an interactivity creating its own self-sustaining ecology. The project aims to design and pilot such ecosystems in different partner countries, and to produce case based guidance to other European communities.
The core mission is to empower entrepreneurial women to create such eco-systems themselves in support of consolidating and expanding their business.
