“This project seeks to support the implementation of the Small Business Act, and in particular its Principle 1: ‘Create an environment in which entrepreneurs and family businesses can thrive and entrepreneurship is rewarded’. It sets out to encourage entrepreneurship among women by creating a European Network of Female Entrepreneurship Ambassadors.
The Network of Ambassadors aims to have successful entrepreneurs campaigning on the ground to encourage women — including women in active professional life and students — to set up their own businesses and become entrepreneurs. The ambassadors will seek to make women more confident about setting up and creating successful businesses.
They also will act as role models, to inspire other women to become entrepreneurs by ‘telling their story’. The call is addressed solely to organisations active in the field of fostering, promoting and/or supporting entrepreneurship, with a view to setting up a Network to bring together successful entrepreneurs across Europe to work locally and nationally to inspire and encourage women to consider becoming an entrepreneur as an attractive career option and follow their lead.”
