FEM-Up – Level Up female entrepreneurship and STEM skills to foster women empowerment
FEM-Up goal is supporting women’s innovation and economic empowerment both through work-based educational pathways, and by providing women with real entrepreneurial support, facilitating the development of their entrepreneurial skills, and promoting gender equity via actions that push for the employment of women in innovative business areas and tackle unconscious biases regarding female entrepreneurship and leadership. FEM-Up wants to inspire and encourage young women to overcome social and cultural barriers showing and making them apply their creative and innovative side via a training pathway and a contest that will bring them to concretely develop their own innovative ideas. In the long run the objective is to contribute to the increase of female innovators/entrepreneurs in Europe.
