Overview
Présentation

Entrepreneurship enjoys strong momentum (with 815,300 businesses created in 2019) and an increasingly positive image. However, it is no stranger to inequality, stereotypes or sexism. Combating the under-representation of women in entrepreneurship is an economic as well as a societal issue. It is not only about equality, but also expanding our talent pool and promoting diversity in economic decision-making.
