Successful XI MedaWomen Entrepreneur Forum

On November 22nd, 2019 we held the sixth annual Mediterranean Women Entrepreneurs Forum in Casa Llotja de Mar. Organized by the hand of ASCAME and AFAEMME, this event was designed to accelerate the growth of women-owned businesses through access to information, contacts and capital. To address this reality, the sessions aimed to discuss the new generation of young women entrepreneurs. It was an ideal platform to establish business relationships, share good practices and analyse the role of women in the economic development of the Mediterranean. The speakers examined many pressing issues that conveyed a positive image of the incorporation of more women into the labor market. Our president, Maria Helena de Felipe, insisted on “the need to favor internationalization instruments to help companies incorporate women. Nathalie Pilhes (Founding Member of FFEM) pointed out that “if Mediterranean women joined the labor market in the Middle East and Africa, GDP would be increased by an astounding 25%. Other critical concerns such as access to finance, balancing work family life, and digitalization were also thoroughly discussed. This experience was a great opportunity to join businesswomen from all over the Mediterranean.
