Better Incubation: Inclusive Entrepreneurship Deep Dives - Women

This deep dive workshop is a part of the Inclusive Entrepreneurship Workshop series.

It will focus on women as underrepresented group in the entrepreneurship ecosystem. The workshop will create a safe and supportive space to offer inspiration and guidance for business support organisations, based on actions and methodologies already successfully implemented on the ground across Europe, to support implementation of inclusive practice.

You will learn from subject matter experts, social entrepreneurs with lived experiences of the challenges being explored, and business support organisations leading the way in developing and delivering inclusive incubation services.


What is Better Incubation?

Better Incubation is a 2-year programme (2021 - 2023) funded by the European Union Programme for Employment and Social Innovation and co-led by EBN, EVPA and Impact Hub.

The aim of Better Incubation is to foster inclusive and social entrepreneurship in Europe by mobilising and empowering Business Support Organisations (BSOs) with capacities to effectively help the social enterprises and potential entrepreneurs from underrepresented groups to grow their businesses.
