OPEN POSITION: WOMEN IN ENTREPRENEURSHIP

ROLE DESCRIPTION

We believe that entrepreneurship is the way to bring change to the world and thus entrepreneurship should be made as easy as possible to everyone.  

 

Women in Entrepreneurship (we are still looking for a good name...) is a student-driven community that empowers, inspires, and unites women who are interested or involved in entrepreneurship – to get connected with a network of like-minded individuals. We create opportunities to learn and get inspired by amplifying the voices of entrepreneurial-minded women, organizing open events, excursions, and community get-togethers. You will join a team of passionate and bright young individuals who are looking to create change and learn more about topics related to entrepreneurship and inclusivity. 

A big part of this initiative is spreading awareness and providing insights into entrepreneurial concepts from different viewpoints and industries. Let's educate, inspire and motivate the people around us. We also help build valuable connections for women in different stages of their entrepreneurial journey – whether it be having already founded your own venture, dabbling in the startup ecosystem or merely expressing enthusiasm in entrepreneurial thinking.
