Women entrepreneurs still constitute only 1/3rd of entrepreneurs in the EU Member States; the COVID-19 pandemic has even worsened women entrepreneurs’ situation in maintaining their businesses and posed
further challenges in reconciling work and private life. In these challenging times, it is of utmost importance to empower women and women entrepreneurs, and this is the objective of the RE-FEM project as well.
On 8 March, partners of the RE-FEM project celebrated International Women’s Day all around Europe.
The event called DoboGO took place on 8 March, with the mission to celebrate and strengthen the community of women entrepreneurs. SEED Foundation believes that female entrepreneurs are critical agents of change and one of the most important areas to be supported is community development and networking. Being part of an entrepreneurial community supports and inspires them in their carrier-path and everyday lives.
