PWN Global Entrepreneurship Committee is pleased to announce the VEP2021 Virtual Entrepreneurship Program’s launch in association with EU Business School and EMCC for women who have launched or who are planning to launch their own business. The program is open to members and non-members of the PWN network and is offered on a part-time, online basis for over nine months.
The program is truly international, with participants expected to come from all 29 PWN city networks and beyond. The participants may already have started their businesses or maybe at the idea stage. The program is flexible and comprises modular, online monthly training sessions, with tailored coaching circles and mentoring support to help participants put the learning into action.
As one of our new partners, EMCC exists to develop, promote, and set the expectation of best practice in mentoring, coaching, and supervision globally to benefit society. This partnership assures that our participants receive the best type of coaching. EMCC provides mentors who care deeply about people andhave incredibly high personal standards and ambitions.

Patricia Zeegers, PWN Global’s VP of Entrepreneurship, said: “Women business professionals with a desire or need to start their own business and women entrepreneurs in their first 2 to 3 years who are interested in joining this year’s programme should get in touch now. The COVID-19 pandemic is especially harmful to working women, and it will permanently reshape our world as it continues to unfold. However, some changes will serve women business owners well. Remote work, in some form, is here to stay. And investors are starting to expand their focus and include the impact an organization has into the assessment. It’s time for women to step up and present their solutions to current challenges to the world”.
