Youth work Empowering Women Entrepreneurship

Training Course

1-9 November 2020 | Basnko, Bulgaria

Boosting female entrepreneurship is important to the EU's objective for both boosting gender equality and economic growth by creating new opportunities. Indeed, female entrepreneurship could create a leverage effect

Whilst gender gaps between men and women in employment rates and salaries are narrowing, differences are still evident in entrepreneurial careers. Indeed, even though there are more women than men in Europe, female entrepreneurs represent only a third of the self-employed in the EU. Women constitute 52% of the total European population but only 34.4% of the EU self-employed and 30% of start-up entrepreneurs (source: Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs, EU commission). Nevertheless, the European Commission efforts to promotes and supports female entrepreneurship by several initiatives such as the Small Business Act and the Entrepreneurship 2020 Action Plan, women still represent a large pool of under-exploited entrepreneurial potential in Europe. Boosting female entrepreneurship is important to the EU's objective for both boosting gender equality and economic growth by creating new opportunities. Indeed, female entrepreneurship could create a leverage effect; role-models could incite other women to become self-employed and female-led business may perform better, or at least differently. Women may apply different solutions to business issues and are often more concerned by societal effects.
