The Irish Thematic Week will run from Tuesday 23rd March to Thursday the 25th

It will bring together female entrepreneurs and innovation and business support eco-system stakeholders from all regions associated with the W-Power project: Iceland, Ireland, Scotland (including the Shetlands), Sweden, Finland and Canada incorporating a series of matchmaking, networking, learning/upskilling, and capacity building sessions.

Events open to female entrepreneurs and other stakeholders include:

  • Information session about the support of W-Power projects, including a segment on best practice for networking and practical tips
  • Virtual networking with a platform supporting individual matchmaking between participants, based around common interests, collaboration opportunities and common challenges with opportunities for knowledge exchange and transnational cooperation.
  • Interactive panel discussions, incorporating two key topics relevant to female entrepreneurs: importance of role models as a positive influencing factor on entrepreneurial motivation and development, as well as a panel discussing the relevance and impact of peer female entrepreneur networks, different models, best practice, and motivation for taking part

On the last day, 2 workshops will take place - one offering insights and practical advice on the topic of digital marketing support and maximise opportunities for entrepreneurs in the virtual environment, and the second workshop will provide the insight around creating new streams of income by productising your knowledge and skills into online training courses, profitably and from scratch

All participants can mix & match and attend as much or as little of the event and matchmaking and networking facility is offered in a flexible way with entrepreneurs being able to schedule around their busy life. We look forward to welcoming everyone.
