Abstract:1. Situation of female entrepreneurs in chosen countries
2. Project WINGS
3. Practical solutions from WINGS for solving real problems of entrepreneurs
WINGS is a project which aims to unite initiatives by women entrepreneurs as well as improve the mainstreaming of new
technologies, educational and training practices through a European-wide network and online platform
The WINGS mission lies in making good female entrepreneurship initiatives accessible within Europe, whilst bridging the gap amongst local and/or national initiatives of women entrepreneurship. Moreover, the project will stimulate and inspire female entrepreneurs with the opportunity to come together with common goals, whilst also offering them innovative learning and training tools.
The project’s aim is to create a strong, recognisable and sustainable European-wide network. An online platform will
give easy access to current learning and training opportunities to support women entrepreneurs.

Strengthening of the links between women entrepreneurs and actors in the field of entrepreneurship to encourage knowledge,
experience and idea sharing all over Europe.
