In this edition of the Female Entrepreneurship Roundtable, we will tackle the question of how to make entrepreneurship programs more inclusive to motherpreneurs.
Looking at the female entrepreneurship ecosystem, it becomes apparent that many existing offers don't meet the needs of female founders who are mothers: Many of the support offers are inconvenient for parents and their program requirements tend to be intimidating due to time constraints. In this edition of the Female Entrepreneurship Roundtable, we will tackle the question how to make entrepreneurship programs more attractive and inclusive to female founders who are mothers.
In this interactive event, participants will get to connect with many inspiring organizations and contribute to making the female entrepreneurship ecosystem in highly developed countries more inclusive.
