Women entrepreneurship
The EIT community is proud to be home to a thriving community of women innovators, entrepreneurs and students forging a more inclusive and diverse network of innovation for Europe and beyond.

Did you know that female startups founders are a minority in Europe? Even though they represent more than half of the population, women account for less than a third of entrepreneurs. The “INNOVEIT BILBAO: Women Entrepreneurship & Leadership” event will be a celebration of women leading trends and technologies, delivering high impact innovations and representing unique knowledge and expertise.

The event will:

  •     showcase women contribution to economic growth and development through entrepreneurship;
  •     explore the reasons behind the gender breach in women entrepreneurship and finance and its impact in terms of equality and innovation;
  •     reveal the latest best practices in bridging down entrepreneurial stereotypes, support and funding programmes that challenge gendered and culturally specific assumptions.
