The examples of good practice provided in this Report can stimulate the dialogue
between Member States and enhance exchanges of experience on the issue of
promoting female entrepreneurship.
The Member States of the European Union and the European Commission have
identified the issue of female entrepreneurship as a priority within the context of the
Best procedure. Although all Member States have recognised the importance of
promoting entrepreneurship in general and have, in recent years, implemented specific
actions or measures to particularly support female entrepreneurship, this is the first
time that a process of exchange of good practice has been undertaken at European
level. Through the Forum this process was extended even beyond the EU25.
