Call for Proposals - European Network of Mentors for Women Entrepreneurs 6/G/ENT/CIP/10/E/N01C21 Closed!


This project is intended to encourage and support entrepreneurship among women by creating a European Network of Mentors for Women Entrepreneurs.

It is designed as a contribution to implementing the Small Business Act, particularly Principle 1: Create an environment in which entrepreneurs and family businesses can thrive and entrepreneurship is rewarded.


This call is intended to set up national networks of mentors for women entrepreneurs in at least 15 countries. These networks will jointly form the European Network of Mentors for Women Entrepreneurs.
