Together with our partner Entreprise Europe Network, we are pleased to invite established and aspiring business(wo)men to our event to celebrate women's entrepreneurial spirit.

Date: 
03/05/2018 - 18:00 - 20:00

Female creativity and entrepreneurial potential are an under-exploited source of economic growth and jobs in the EU and beyond.

The challenges faced by female entrepreneurs are diverse: access to finance, access to networks for business purposes or reconciling business and family concerns... The European Commission is working with EU countries to overcome these and other challenges, and encourages more women to start their own companies.

But what are the real challenges faced by female entrepreneurs? What are the different support tools and networks at the disposal of women entrepreneurs? And who were the female pioneers here in Luxembourg?

Together with our partner Entreprise Europe Network, we are pleased to invite established and aspiring business(wo)men to our event to celebrate women's entrepreneurial spirit.
