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

For the WER entrepreneurs, this creates a unique opportunity to meet the local, European and US entrepreneurial ecosystem, network with mentors, pose questions about the challenges they are facing and present their projects.
