On the 5th March 2015, WEConnect International hosted ‘Building Your Business – Planning Your Future’ with corporate member Accenture at Aegon’s offices in The Hague. The three organizations joined forces to bring together an interesting and inspiring afternoon for female entrepreneurs in The Netherlands.
