When establishing and running a business, women face more difficulties than men, mainly in access to finance, training, networking, and reconciling business and family.

The EU granted funding to a project tackling this problem – WE GROW.

The objective of the project is to stimulate female participation and increase female success in EU funding for research, development and innovation. 

More specifically, WE GROW supports women entrepreneurs from Belgium, Greece, Croatia and Sweden through:

– Awareness raising for support programmes and funding opportunities

– Direct support and mentoring when applying for the H2020 SME Instrument

Are you a woman entrepreneur based in Brussels?

Have you found or co-found a company?

Are your activities or project (s) innovative?

Then apply for the WE GROW services by filling in this short survey.

If you are active on the topic, but are not an entrepreneur, then contact us to become our stakeholder!

We are glad to cooperate with other organizations with a similar mission in order to boost women entrepreneurship and therefore the economy.
