FORGING THE FUTURE WITH WE4G

A Collective Initiative powering female entrepreneurs
in Green Transition

The COVID-19 pandemic has fundamentally affected every worker, every business, and every household. Women entrepreneurs face a drastically increasing double burden of work and home responsibilities. Women-led businesses are also particularly vulnerable, with 90% of these businesses having experienced a significant decrease in revenues. While being disproportionately hurt by the economic fallout, women are the driving force behind our advancement in innovation, science, and a powerful and underutilised engine of growth.

In the framework of the Women4Business Daring Circle, the Women’s Forum for the Economy & Society, in partnership with P&G and the HEC Paris Innovation & Entrepreneurship Center has decided to launch WomenEntrepreneurs4Good, an initiative designed to inspire and foster female creativity and entrepreneurship for good in Europe.  

The WomenEntrepreneurs4Good is an annual accelerator program, supporting women entrepreneurs with high-potential ideas in alignment with the European Green Deal strategy.
