Whether you have a great idea you want to launch, or a business you’re running that you want to grow, PWN Barcelona’s Entrepreneurship programme gives you all the business tools and connections you need to take your business to the next level, in one place.
The PWN Barcelona E-Programme is the only programme in Barcelona which aims at tackling the gender gap in the start-up sector by taking a deeper look into the underlying obstacles that affect women-led businesses.
The program is built in three units:
Idea Unit: aimed at the next generation of female entrepreneurs with an initial entrepreneurial idea. Here you will learn everything you need to know about becoming an entrepreneur (e.g.Lean methodologies, customer discovery techniques, speaking like a CEO, etc.)
Build Unit: workshops focused on your business model, oriented toward adding value to the market and selling to high-value customers by securing a high profit margin. From there you’ll develop several foundational business skills including financial management, IP protection and sales.
Growth Unit: aimed established or early stage startups with a need to reach the market, scale up or looking for a seed round. The workshops in this unit will provide you with a simple methodology to prioritize how, when and where to grow by defining the right KPIs, negotiation and talent recruitment skills. Here you will also learn how to fundraise your venture (public funding and private equity), having the opportunity to present your pitch in front of a selected group of top local and international investors.
