Luxembourg non-profit Women in Digital Empowerment (WIDE) has announced a series of events aimed at supporting female entrepreneurship.

In the context of economic recovery and with the aim of actively supporting women wishing to create a business, particularly in the technology and digital fields, WIDE is offering a series of activities to encourage more women to get started.

"We have [...] seen a drop in the number of creation projects since the start of the pandemic. It is essential that women take advantage of the recovery context to relaunch on business creation with a sustainable perspective. We are waiting for Luxembourg's future tech nuggets!", explained Marina Andrieu, co-founder and director of WIDE.

This Friday marks the start of the "Entrepreneurship Talks", a series of webinars to share WIDE's experience in the field as well as those of other entrepreneurs.

The non-profit is also organising a “Move it forward+” hackathon next month to stimulate co-creation.
