WEbarometer - Opening Doors for Women Entrepreneurs

We know the present time is challenging for women entrepreneurs.  

The COVID-19 crisis has taken a toll on businesses across the globe, with women entrepreneurs disproportionately affected.

We have heard stories everyday of WEs fighting to keep their business afloat, often in the most ingenious, creative and socially responsible ways. The challenges are countless, from new obstacles on access to finance, to the restructuring of business and working models. But there must be opportunities too.

WEgate wants to help women entrepreneurs pave a way to recovery. We want to be part of the solution and help shape the future landscape for WEs post COVID-19.

WEgate is a community of woman entrepreneurs (WEs) and those that support them. Our objective is to help more women become entrepreneurs, and to help more women to grow their businesses. WEgate’s goal of a vibrant, trailblazing WE community means putting the spotlight on, and listening to, YOU – your experiences, your needs, your recommendations, your achievements.

The first ever WEbarometer survey was designed to help us take stock of current WEs’ challenges and needs. By completing the survey, women entrepreneurs can give us important information on what they need government to do so that their business can survive and thrive.

And if that wasn’t enough of an incentive, completing the survey will also give you an automatic invitation to the relaunch event of WEgate in September, where (among many other things) you will be able to:

  • Be the first to hear the 2020 WEbarometer survey results. 
  • Take part in matchmaking sessions with WE venture capitalists and financiers; 
  • Join workshops to help you boost your business in the post-COVID-19 recovery period. 
  • Discuss the needs and challenges of women entrepreneurship with other members of the WEgate community - and work together to find the right solutions.

We invite you to not only complete the WEbarometer survey, but also share it with your networks and contacts, so that the findings are as representative of the views of the women entrepreneurship community as possible.

The survey will remain open until 31st of July 2020 (included).

A community is only as strong as its members. A few minutes of your time can make a big difference for all women entrepreneurs, and provide the support and confidence they need.The WEgate project and its Community are managed by a consortium led by the European Small Business Alliance (ESBA) and comprising Business Angels Europe (BAE)Foundation for Management and Industrial Research and GYB International.
