From commitments to actions: connecting female entrepreneurs to the corporate world | In-person event in Rotterdam, Netherlands (22 June 2022)

This gathering will bring together corporate leaders and fellow women-owned businesses, providing a unique opportunity to meet and hear from corporate leaders across Europe on supplier diversity and inclusion, as well as from women entrepreneurs who are making a mark on their respective industries.

This will be a small event with 35 places available for women business owners based in BENELUX who own 51% or more of their business and who have B2B products or services that might be bought by corporate organisations. We are intentionally making this a small-scale event to ensure that attendees can participate in meaningful conversations and enjoy everything that this unique networking and learning opportunity has to offer.
