NextGen WOMEN ENTREPRENEURS WEEK 2017

12 - 16 JUNE 2017 | ZURICH | SWITZERLAND

WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT

The NextGen Women Entrepreneurs Week supports a new generation of women entrepreneurs from Albania, Bosnia Herzegovina, Macedonia, Serbia, Peru and Vietnam who are focused on creating market value to drive business growth. The one week program will be held in Switzerland and will leverage mentors and investors to support the women entrepreneurs to overcome road blocks preventing their business from growing.

The women entrepreneurs are founders or CEO of businesses already in the market with a unique product or service and which strive for future global expansion. The mentors are successful entrepreneurs, investors and business people from the women entrepreneurs home countries and Switzerland. These mentors and investors provide inspiration and lessons from their own story, engage on important entrepreneurship topics and work to improve the business models of the NextGen Women Entrepreneurs.

PUBLIC FINAL PITCH - FRIDAY 16 JUNE 2017

We open up the doors for the final pitch, concluding the one week program with our next generation of women entrepreneurs. The most promising entrepreneurs will present their business to a top-class jury. We invite interested people to attend this public and free event.
