Womenpreneur Initiative

Female entrepreneurship is on the rise. More and more women are unlocking their creative minds to create innovative social businesses.

The issue is: how do they turn their ideas into reality? How do they access to information & investment? How do they deal with social constraints? And how can they tap the full power of new technologies and take part of the digital revolution?
