The winds of change were acknowledged during the EIC’s launching event of the Women Leadership Programme on October 7, now it’s time to continue overcoming gender barriers and encourage female power. To do so, we invite you – one of the 50 selected participants of the programme – to join our dedicated training and networking sessions. These events will enhance the participants’ business skills and promote their networking beyond the EIC Community. By joining our events, you will follow a leadership development journey that will start with fundamental entrepreneurial skills, followed by more specific support in business matters. Discover our next training and networking event below, and don’t miss the opportunity to register your participation!


Training and Networking Event #1 with Impulse4Women:  22 October, from 9:30h to 13h00

Strategies and tips to move from start-up to scale-up 

Getting your business off the ground can be difficult but scaling it up will bring you a new array of challenges to handle with. As a young entrepreneur, you will need to manage both: the art of the start and the audacity of scale, while building a broad management skillset and strong collaborations. Did we scare you? If we did, please don’t worry too much because we have the right training for you. On 22 October, our first EIC WLP Training and Networking session will take a deep dive into the strategies and tips to create and grow your business. And who better than experienced investors and managing directors to guide you through the process? Our session, organised in Partnership with Impulse4Women, will bring you the tips and tricks that you need, but also the testimonials from who already walked a mile in your shoes.   


Register here (registrations are open until 21 October 2021).
