The Women in Entrepreneurship Roadshow is a project conceived by the European Young Innovators Forum, one of the leading organisation for youth innovation and entrepreneurship in Europe. WER is a non-profit project powered by the United States Mission to the European Union, Startup Europe, the European Commission and Amazon and its aim is to support and empower women entrepreneurs. The Roadshow consists of a series of 10 events across Europe with the goal of connecting 300 women entrepreneurs with 30 VCs and top players in the European and the US ecosystem in order to facilitate access to finance. The short term goal is to connect entrepreneurs with VCs and ecosystem builders and business angels and identify the main challenges women entrepreneurs face when accessing finance through workshops. The long term goal is to produce a report with our findings to present to the European Union with policy recommendations.

The aim of the workshops is to connect women entrepreneurs with VCs and business angels. During the workshops, VCs will have a chance to share some insights into the venture capital world, share advice and create connections with the WER entrepreneurs. For the WER entrepreneurs, this is a chance to meet the local, European and US entrepreneurial ecosystem, an opportunity to network with mentors, pose questions about your challenges and present your projects. For more information please see the agenda below.
