Event Details


Female Entrepreneurs

In the tradition of giving the floor to women speakers the focus this time is on female entrepreneurs. Not only are women in the space sector under represented, women also remain a minority among entrepreneurs. A 2014 report from Babson College found that less than 3 percent of venture capital-funded businesses had women at the helm. But there is increasing attention on levelling the playing field and number of opportunities available to women in business today. This three inspiring women will present about their thoughts and businesses. What can we learn from them from their road on starting a business? What kind of support and network are there helping level the playing field for female entrepreneurs

Join us to get inspired and empowered to turn your ideas into a reality and build successful businesses.
