Our colleagues will hold a workshop under the title „How to capture the entrepreneurial potential of women? Demonstrating various approaches in education and in business to boost entrepreneurial mindset” in the EuroScience Open Forum in Triest, in September 2020*. Registration for the event is open.

Our session will foster an interactive discussion about the importance of entrepreneurial mindset and entrepreneurship education in higher education institutions and in businesses, focusing especially on potential female entrepreneurs. The relevance of the focus is deriving from the fact that men are 2-3 times more likely to start a business than women and entrepreneurship education does not deal with possible hindrances of women and strategies to overcome.

Our session will be based on the experiences of ifempower project which supports interactive and mentorship based FEMale emPOWERment in the field of entrepreneurship.
