Empowering women entrepreneurs towards a Green Transition
“The WE4G programme gave me expertise, visibility and peer support that helped me turn a simple idea into a well-running business.”
Marie-Noelle Sarocchi, Founder, BugSafe and laureate of the programme WomenEntrepreneurs4Good
In partnership with
Launched in March 2021 WomenEntrepreneurs4Good was imagined as a concrete solution to the negative impacts of the crisis on women entrepreneurs. Through a dedicated startup accelerator programme, WE4G was designed to foster creativity and innovation, and accompany women-led green projects to achieve a greater impact.
Where are we one year later? While the effects of the crisis are still being felt, the pressure to rebuild a new green global economy is greater than ever. We know that a green economic transition is not achievable without the equal participation of women. Nowadays, women entrepreneurs still face greater challenges compared to men, including gender biases, work-life balance, lack of professional networks and support,especially when it comes to funding (in 2020 only 2.3% of VC funding went to women-led startups!).
This is why, together with our partners Procter&Gamble and HEC Paris, we are proud to launch the second edition of WomenEntrepreneurs4Good: to support projects led by strong women creating a better future for all.
