It’s time to put the spotlight on and celebrate women entrepreneurs and women in leadership, and those who collaborate with and support women to become their everything. The Women’s Entrepreneurship Day is being celebrated in Luxembourg on November 15th this year and we have the coolest speaker panel ever!! Plus, a Speaking Contest where five local women entrepreneurs will take the stage.
Come join us for an evening of phenomenal panel discussions around how to face everything related to getting started with and/or getting ahead with your business. How do you get off the ground? How do you even get started? And how on earth do you take your business to the next level once you’ve managed with a lot of hard work to get past the phase of “very expensive hobby”? Or, if you’re one of the few who’s got a steady situation, but you want MORE, how do you get there?
