Women@business aims to support entrepreneurship on three levels enhancing the principle of ‘learning, doing and reflecting’. As such, the project is designed to enhance theoretical entrepreneurial knowledge, to offer practical first-hand experience, and to create the appropriate circumstances for effective reflection and the provision of proper direction and guidance in entrepreneurship.
The project objectives are:
to create the correct conditions for young female graduates and young women from ethnic minorities or immigrant backgrounds, to be encouraged to pursue entrepreneurship;
to produce an innovative model of a full consultancy package to promote entrepreneurship that can be replicated on a European level, and sustained after the conclusion of the project;
to trigger discussion amongst decision makers and lobbyists towards simplifying procedures for potential entrepreneurs to be encouraged and assisted in this field.
