Being a Woman Entrepreneur Face-to-Face training @ Starttech Ventures

This Thursday on December 7, from 15:30 – 19:30, we will co-host a face-to-face open workshop at our Athens HQ. We’ll review the first three webinars ran so far, and there will be small group Q&A mentoring sessions with our startup coaches Dimitris Tsingos, Ioannis Belegrinis and Aristeidis Kypriotis. Register today to book your place!

Being a woman entrepreneur: the course

Let’s face it, being an entrepreneur is tough. But how about being a woman entrepreneur? Is it different, perhaps more challenging? The answer to the above questions are a combination of yes and no. There’s no doubt that entrepreneurship is a unisex occupation.

But as well as covering the ins and outs of getting into business and dealing with investors on a general basis, the WBA free online training course aims to zoom in on the idiosyncrasies of attitude, character and psychology which make women tick. Because like it or not, men and women do think and act differently.
