Women are still under-represented among business founders, particularly in high-tech and in other high-growth fields, despite their majority representation at colleges and universities as well as increased participation in science and engineering.

Also, there seems to be a disconnect between opportunities and resources in equity funding for high growth women-owned/led businesses– in the US, but even more so in Europe. Some of the topics to be discussed are:

  1. What can we do to get more women entrepreneurs in high tech, biotech, clean tech and other high growth industries?
  2. How do the organizations supporting women entrepreneurs compare in the US vs. Europe? How do we learn about them in the first place?
  3. How effective are the different educational systems in providing and encouraging technical and business training and how can we take advantage of them more efficiently?
  4. How can we best take advantage of the resources available for leadership development to grow our businesses?
  5. How do the entrepreneurs attending today go about “Eat, pray, love” regarding all of the above?

Are you an entrepreneur, or are you thinking of starting a business? Join us for an interactive discussion about international women entrepreneurs. Everyone is welcome; please bring an experience to tell!
