Although women are actively involved in the labour market, they remain underrepresented as entrepreneurs. The total European population consists of 52% women, but only 30 % of start-up entrepreneurs are women. Women’s entrepreneurship in science and technology is even worse, with only 5-15% of high-tech business is owned by women.
The women’s entrepreneurial and leadership potential is still an underexploited source for the EU economic growth.
The webinar, moderated by our colleague Aljosa Pasic, aimed to discuss how to tackle this critical challenge with outstanding speakers. It also aimed at facilitating networking among women potentially interested in starting a new career path. For this reason, webinar included a mentoring activity, implemented as private-calls among the audience and speakers.
